RETRACTION: Recently this website,, inaccurately reported that Taylor & Francis had acquired Quality Medical Publishing, Inc. (QMP). This is not true. QMP has not been sold and remains an independent publishing company. However, in response to changes in the publishing industry, QMP recently sold its book publishing assets to Taylor & Francis Group, LLC. This sale allows QMP to focus its efforts on expanding its growing multimedia and eLearning initiatives as well as its medical symposia and corporate programs. QMP will still specialize in the plastic surgery, dermatology, facial plastic surgery, neurosurgery, orthopedic surgery, and spine surgery markets, but its educational offerings will primarily be accessed online, on DVD, or on mobile devices.
