Abstract summaries


Abstract summariesWelcome to our Journal Alerting section. We have set up this journal section of the site to bring you summaries of useful recently published papers. It may help you to keep up-to-date without having to read through all the medical literature. Just revisit this page which will be updated monthly.

In most cases, you will find a link to PubMed (MEDLINE) for each summary if you would like to read more. If the article is quite recent then sometimes the link takes some weeks to appear.

Each month, we will add summaries of abstracts from various journals. This page only displays the latest month of articles or your search results. If you would like to search the database (to view previous article summaries) then use the search box below to specify a date range or subject area.

Have you seen any recent abstracts that you think should be included here? Please let us know by emailing via our contact form.
