SCHAUMBURG, Ill., April 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Launched earlier this month as a members-only benefit, the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) has opened access to its AVMA Collections to the general public, expanding the public's ability to tap into cutting edge and up-to-date veterinary medical information.
AVMA Collections was created to offer AVMA member veterinarians compilations of articles organized by topic/subject from the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association (JAVMA) and other AVMA journals. While the JAVMA is an excellent source of research and information on veterinary medicine, this new resource will provide quick, easy access to a collection of articles on a specific topic, dramatically improving the speed at which articles may be researched. AVMA Collections helps readers -- and now everyone -- make sense of the deep resources that the JAVMA offers.
"By tapping the recent archives of our scientific journals, we are able to leverage the meticulous work already done by our journal editors to bring those articles to publication," explains Dr. Janis Audin, Editor-In-Chief of JAVMA. "We couple this deep resource with an online format that allows rapid assembly into an efficient, coherent package that helps users quickly find what they need."
Currently, AVMA Collections offers compilations of articles on topics such as obesity in dogs and zoonotic diseases, which are diseases transmittable between animals and humans such as Lyme disease, E coli, and tuberculosis to name a few. Each article in AVMA Collections is carefully selected by AVMA journal editors to give the most helpful picture of current knowledge in a given subject area.
AVMA Collections is designed to be quick, easy to use and informative. Each Collection is organized around a table of contents, which offers a topic summary and highlights for each article. If the reader desires more information than a summary provides, the entire article is just a hyperlink away.
The AVMA and its more than 76,000 member veterinarians are engaged in a wide variety of activities dedicated to advancing the science and art of animal, human and public health. Visit the AVMA Web site at http://www.avma.org for more information.
