The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) has released its first mobile application to provide access to the content from all 10 medical journals, including JAMA Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery.
The new reader is designed for users of any device, and for a limited time, the browser-based app will be free.
“By leveraging HTML5 technology, the web app will provide mobile and desktop readers with a user experience optimized for online and offline mobile reading, whether via desktop, tablet, or smartphone, in the office, on rounds, in the laboratory, on the train or plane, or in any comfortable reading chair,” said JAMA Network Publisher, Thomas J. Easley.
“In the future, we will introduce other applications that will allow audio and video display and substantial personalization of The JAMA Network journal content,” the editorial notes.
The JAMA Network Reader web app can be accessed at mobile.jamanetwork.com and there is no need to visit an app store. Links will also be available on any of the JAMA Network journals’ websites. Here’s a link to a video with JAMA Editor-in-Chief Howard Bauchner, MD, talking about the new app.
