The JAMA Network Reader Debuts
CHICAGO — New this week (March 6, 2013) from The JAMA Network is the first mobile application to provide access to the content from all 10 medical journals – JAMA and the 9 specialty journals. The new reader is designed for users of any device and for a limited time, the browser-based app will be free.
“The JAMA Network Reader is a true network app, as it simultaneously extends the content of JAMA and the 9 JAMA Network specialty journals to all digital devices and expands the visibility of individual articles beyond the current readership of just one journal,” writes JAMA Editor-in-Chief, Howard Bauchner, M.D., and colleagues in an editorial in this week’s issue of JAMA.
“By leveraging HTML5 technology, the web app will provide mobile and desktop readers with a user experience optimized for online and offline mobile reading, whether via desktop, tablet, or smartphone, in the office, on rounds, in the laboratory, on the train or plane, or in any comfortable reading chair,” adds JAMA Network Publisher, Thomas J. Easley.
“In the future we will introduce other applications that will allow audio and video display and substantial personalization of The JAMA Network journal content,” the editorial notes.
The JAMA Network Reader web app can be accessed at mobile.jamanetwork.com and there is no need to visit an app store. Links will also be available on any of the JAMA Network journals’ websites.
