In December the Journal of Hospital Medicine (JHM, the peer-reviewed sister publication of The Hospitalist) was selected for indexing and inclusion in the National Library of Medicine’s MEDLINE (Medical Literature Analysis and Retrieval System Online). MEDLINE is a bibliographic database that contains 13 million references to journal articles in medicine, nursing, dentistry, veterinary medicine, healthcare systems, and preclinical sciences. It’s the primary component of PubMed, part of the Entrez series of databases provided by the Library’s National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI).
“The Journal’s acceptance is a profound recognition that hospital medicine has developed its own sphere of medical knowledge and that hospitalists are making a significant impact on our modern healthcare delivery system,” says Larry Wellikson, MD, FACP, SHM CEO.
JHM, an official SHM publication, debuted in February 2006 and is the premier forum for peer-reviewed research articles and evidence-based reviews in the specialty of hospital medicine. For more information about JHM, visit www.interscience.wiley.com/journal/jhm.
