"In this new mobile and tablet age, you have to think about how a doctor seeks and uses the information they need," explains Scott Virkler, SVP e-Products Global Medical Research, Elsevier Health Sciences. "iPad gave us the opportunity to rewrite the rules according to the needs of our readers and provide them a convenient solution. With this article-based navigation app, we've created an entirely new model that responds to our readers' need to get to the articles they want, when they want."

The app gives subscribers convenient access to the latest articles published in The Lancet, The Lancet Oncology, The Lancet Neurology and The Lancet Infectious Diseases.
