Announcing the New JAMA.com

Posted by @DanHinmon, Oct 11, 2016

Thanks to @westr for pointing us to this article announcing significant updates in the JAMA.com website.

Bob writes, “This is both important and relevant to MCSMN because it clearly shows how the practice of medicine and health care are being significantly influenced by social media in a digital age. I expect other journals to follow suit (some, like BMJ, already have made the transition).”

The author says “Whether readers, authors, institutions, or funders support the costs of publishing, publishing to a contemporary online standard—making medical science discoverable, mobile, consumable, and social—is a complex, full-time, and ongoing program that should be a part of conversations about the standards and costs of how to make science more accessible and open.”
