Access change at BMJ

February 2005 marks a transition at the British Medical Journal (BMJ).

Original research articles remain free but the full text of other articles (e.g., editorials and reviews) are free only for the first week after publication and then under access controls for the next 51 weeks, after which all content will once again be free.

Since editorials and reviews are important sources of topic overviews, I recommend that users subscribe to the weekly alerts for the BMJ table of contents.

Then be sure to access the editorials and reviews within one week. <;-)
  • Tip: "Save as" (under FILE menu): Save reviews and editorials to your desktop as web pages (.htm or .html files) for reading later at your leisure.
