The American Medical Association announced yesterday that it has knocked down its access control wall for its American Medical News. The site now has ten years of full content and some older selected articles — all told, an archive of about 15,000 articles. You can access the archives at http://www.ama-assn.org/amednews/site/archives.htm. And as the AMA said in its announcement, “We invite our readers to visit the archives and link to our articles from their own sites, blogs and posts.”
The archives have full text back to 2000, with selected content back to 1995. Articles are divided up into topic/section. Poking around randomly found me articles like Fall-related injuries cost Medicare billions, Handling the toxic employee: How to avoid — or dilute — the poison , and Patient safety improving slightly, 10 years after IOM report on errors. There’s also an article search page. A search for substance abuse found 314 results sorted by date.
While you’re here, you might also want to check the new mobile version of the American Medical News at http://www.ama-assn.org/amednews/site/m.htm. Movile updates are available via e-mail or RSS. Plenty to read here.
