Browse articles by Journal, Year or Issue

As well as suggesting interesting articles online or in your weekly emailed metajournal, you can now also browse articles by journal, year or even just scroll through a single journal issue. Simply click on the journal name or issue date above an abstract to focus your abstract browsing.

So whether you want to see the latest articles from the British Journal of Anaesthesia, the top articles of 2017 from the American Journal of Emergency Medicine, or simply browse through the October issue of Current Opinion in Anesthesiology, metajournal can keep you up to date.

Of course, signed-in users can also search across any of these scopes – say, if you want to see the top remifentanil abstracts from IJOA, or find that elusive C-MAC c-spine article you vaguely remember seeing in a 2017 Am J Emerg Med issue – just hit the Search... button.

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 subscribers can download their latest, updated quarterly CPD report with one click!

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!

Browse trending articles

When browsing your articles page you may have noticed a new link: trending articles.

Find and read trending medical articles and papers on metajournal

Trending articles gives you a glimpse into which papers the rest of the metajournal community, with similar clinical interests to you, are reading, sharing and studying.

These are not necessarily the latest or most recent articles, but rather those that currently most interest metajournal users who follow the same journals as you.

Read latest medical articles and papers on metajournal

Next to the trending tab, you will also find a link to the latest articles - showing the newest articles published from all the journals that you follow in your metajournal account. This is a great way to dip your toe into the waters of the latest published research in your field, browsing through the freshest and newest papers.

Between metajournal's article suggestions, trending and latest articles, you will be certain to find something that not only interests you – but also improves your practice.

Find related articles

Metajournal now suggests related articles underneath the abstract you are reading.

This is a simple feature that may have a dramatic impact on your understanding and appreciation of the greater body of evidence surrounding a topic.

Find and read related medical articles and papers on metajournal

Metajournal goes a step further than PubMed's suggestions of related articles, by not just considering the similarity of titles and abstracts, but by also leveraging the machine learning of the metajournal Collective Intelligence Engine to consider article significance, relevance and quality.

For nice examples of Related Articles in action, have a look at the SAFE study (NEJM 2004) and the B-Aware trial (Lancet 2004) – where the suggested 'related articles' include both interesting papers and more recent studies that may otherwise not be seen.
