The Center for Biomedical Informatics at the Harvard Medical School in collaboration with the Public Library of Science (PLoS.org) have created this iphone application for PLoS Medicine, the open-access journal publishing important original research and analysis relevant to human health.
PLoS Medicine is the leading open-access medical journal, providing an innovative and influential venue for research and comment on the major challenges to human health worldwide. The journal specifically seeks to publish papers which have relevance across a range of settings and that address the major environmental, social, and political determinants of health, as well as the biological.
To launch the application, simply touch the PLoS icon and you are immediately taken to a screen that contains the most recent and viewed articles, with an option to search for anything else from the current or archive issues using your touch keypad. Other features include:
* Clear article layout - with options to view the PDF or view online
* Favorite and share - straight from your phone
* Access the full archive - never be without the content you need again
* Get further information - about PLoS in general and PLoS Medicine specifically
Now you can have PLoS Medicine in the palm of your hand wherever you go. We hope that you enjoy the experience!
To give CBMI feedback on this release, please send your comments, or requests for technical support with the application itself, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If open access wasn't cool enough already....
A fun, free app that puts every paper in PLoS Medicine at your fingertips, updated with each new publication.
This is a fantastic app. Interesting articles. One recommendation is to add a Twitter share button.
