JournalJunkie.com “provides medical professionals with immediate audio access to abstracts from the latest medical journals.” It is free, but you must register. You can even download the abstracts as MP3 files for listening at another time or sign up for podcasts. The site is the creation of three Australian health professionals: Dr. Craig Dalton [School of Medical Practice and Population Health, University of Newcastle], Walter Kaan, R.N. [New South Wales Rural Doctors Network, Newcastle], and Jane Gray [New South Wales Health, North Sydney].

Journals included are: Annals of Internal Medicine, Archives of Internal Medicine, British Medical Journal, Circulation, Journal of the American Medical Association, New England Journal of Medicine, Public Library of Science-Medicine, The Lancet, The Lancet Infectious Diseases, and The Lancet-Neurology. The abstracts seem to be very current, with the exception of Circulation and Archives of Internal Medicine, which are three months behind.

This looks like a wonderful resource to make available to your physician customers.

Just wanted to let your readers know we've added a podcast from "Emerging Infectious Diseases" to JournalJunkie.com.
Thanks for promoting our free service to physicians!
