The iPad Provides Digital Versions of Academic Medical Journals
The growth of digital publishing, combined with the growing number of physicians and medical students with iPads in their hands, has motivated many medical journals to create iPad apps that put digital editions in subscribers' hands. (iMedicalApps maintains a list.) In addition to current articles, the apps typically include multimedia content, back issues and the ability to share articles. Sure, digital magazines are everywhere, but in an industry that uses research from all corners of the globe to drive advancements in diagnosing, treating and curing disease, readily available information is a huge step forward.
