Philadelphia, PA, 1 October, 2010 Elsevier announces that the Journal of the American Society of Hypertension (JASH) has been selected for inclusion in MEDLINE. MEDLINE is the premier bibliographic database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM), containing over 15 million journal article citations, with a concentration on biomedicine.
"The entire Editorial Board and I are extremely pleased that JASH has been added to the MEDLINE journal collection," JASH Editor, Myron H. Weinberger, MD, of the Indiana University School of Medicine, commented. "Inclusion in this prominent database signals recognition of the Journal's scientific merit and contribution to the field. But more importantly, MEDLINE indexing will help researchers and other interested parties throughout the world locate articles published in JASH."
As the official journal of the American Society of Hypertension (ASH), the peer-reviewed JASH is circulated to the Society's 2,000+ active members, as well as other subscribers and libraries. JASH publishes peer-reviewed articles on the topics of basic, applied, and translational research on blood pressure, hypertension, and related cardiovascular disorders and factors. JASH strives to provide the tools physicians need to solve everyday problems, while also offering powerful food for thought on the larger issues evolving within the specialty today.
The MEDLINE selection process is managed by an advisory committee, the Literature Selection Technical Review Committee, composed of authorities knowledgeable in biomedicine, who recommend only select journals that the NLM should index. MEDLINE contains bibliographic citations and author abstracts from more than 5,000 biomedical journals published in the United States and 80 other countries, and is searchable for free using PubMed at http://pubmed.gov. Indexing of JASH will include all issues published since its inception in 2007.
With medical practice in a period of rapid change, it is critical for clinicians to understand the regulatory, legal and economic forces that impact their fields, especially a field changing as rapidly as radiology. As publishing partners, the ASH and Elsevier are gratified that researchers and practitioners worldwide can easily find the valuable information offered in JASH now through MEDLINE.
