Elsevier Introduces The American Journal of Medicine Blog

NEW YORK, December 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ --

- The American Journal of Medicine

The American Journal of Medicine (AJM), one of Elsevier's flagship health sciences journals, has introduced the American Journal of Medicine blog (, a dynamic forum where physicians and other healthcare professionals can discuss the research and applications for clinical practice that have been published in the Journal.

"The American Journal of Medicine has been a leading medical journal for more than 50 years," comments Joseph S. Alpert, MD, Professor of Medicine, University of Arizona College of Medicine and Editor-in-Chief of the Journal. "The editorial and administrative arms of the Journal and publisher Elsevier feel that the time is right to take greater advantage of the interactivity and social networking opportunities offered by the web. Therefore we have launched the AJM blog. We welcome opinion, relevant statistics, quotations from other sources, rational and thoughtful commentary and academic debate. Our expectation is that the Journal's blog will spark informative - perhaps even spirited - discussions, similar to those found on other media blogs. We want to know what our readers think about what we are publishing."

Primary content for the blog is taken from the pages of the Journal including most editorials, commentaries and lead research articles.

Blog submissions that do not adhere to the standard of quality and level of professionalism appropriate to the Journal and its readership will not be accepted. Blog submissions are limited to 150 words and selected references supporting a particular point are allowed. Material posted on the blog is not published by AJM and therefore will not be cited as a manuscript or letter in AJM; submissions will not have AJM or PubMed citations.
