Why did we build 'Read by QxMD'?

Health care professionals need to stay up to date on the latest medical research and topic reviews to provide optimal care. Unfortunately, the process of content discovery is broken with research artificially compartmentalized by publishers and hidden behind countless institutional pay walls.

At QxMD, we believe that knowledge translation– the process by which new knowledge is incorporated into clinical practice – is an important and unsolved challenge for our health care system. We hope that ‘Read by QxMD’ will be a part of the solution.

Customer Reviews

Great source to centralize all your up to date journal needs

This is a fantastic app and I'm so grateful they made it! Reading multiple journals can be challenging on different sites, clicking through different menus, etc and this app makes that so much easier. I love that you can pick what journals/subjects to subscribe to and I love making different folders for different paper topics. Also fun to follow other peoples collections!

Caveat: the app is more useful if you have institutional access so you can get full texts, but you can at least read abstracts and bookmark papers of interest

Needs one thing

It is difficult to use this app without institutional access. However, there are some journals on the master list that are open access. If only the list was marked in some way, so that it was easy to tell without having to,add it, try to download and article, then edit it, find it again on a very long list, and delete it. All it needs it a simple asterisk or some such identifier to save soooo much time, and let us easily know which journals are open access and which require institutional accounts. Do that and you get a 5. Not all of us are still connected to institutions that give access.

Stay updated on the latest medicine

This is a phenomenal application. Is the easiest way to stay updated on the latest medical literature with the least amount of effort. It automatically will download for articles with you login through your institution.

This lens you to read at your leisure. Mark articles that you want to view closer. And it gives you the articles that are trending.
