Improved article CPD reporting

Metajournal's CPD reporting feature has been fine-tuned in response to some great feedback from metajournal users. This will better track the articles you read, either online or those metajournal suggests to you in your emailed metajournal article digest. Perfect for providing to your professional college, specialty board or institution.

Previously metajournal did not consider an article 'read' by default until you explicitly clicked through to the article full-text when logged in. Now metajournal will also include abstracts you read and article abstracts emailed, so as to more accurately reflect your true continuing education. (Of course you can still generate custom CPD reports via the CPD reports page.)

Metajournal: now over half a million articles indexed!

Wow. Last week metajournal quietly indexed it's 500,000th article!

We now track over 100 journals related to critical care specialties: anesthesiology, emergency medicine, intensive care and pain medicine.

Everyday metajournal indexes, qualifies and assesses new articles published not just in these journals, but also the highest quality articles that are related to articles from these journals, regardless of where they are published.

This ensures that if a quality, significant and personally relevant article is published outside the core specialty journals that you follow, metajournal will still recommend the article to you.

Incredibly, only 9 months ago metajournal was celebrating indexing it's 50,000th article. Grow on!

Better article suggestions

To welcome in the new year, metajournal quietly rolled-out a big update to the machine learning magic that is the foundation for recommending quality, significant and personally relevant papers to you based on your professional medical interests.

Suggesting quality, significant, relevant medical papers and articles

The metajournal Collective Intelligence Engine, is the secret sauce that integrates evidence with your own interests, along with topics that other clinicians in your specialty are following and interested in.

Not only does metajournal look for quality articles that are relevant to the Topics and Journals that you follow – metajournal is now smart enough to follow your article reading behavior.

As you read and favorite papers and abstracts, metajournal learns more about the types of articles that you find most interesting and relevant – the topics, the authors, the journals, and many many more features. Metajournal will even recommend particularly relevant papers that are outside your followed journals, reducing the chance that you miss something truly important.

Metajournal is also smart enough to understand which articles you do not find interesting – simply click the not interesting... link under an abstract and metajournal will grow a little wiser by understanding what is not relevant to you.

The best way to get the most out of metajournal's growing intelligence is simply to teach metajournal more about what interests you: follow interesting Topics, click through to Read interesting abstracts and Favorite the most interesting papers, and when metajournal suggests Not interesting... articles – click the link to tell it!
