Web 2.0 and evidence based health and mental health

I’ve been writing an article on Web 2.0 and evidence based medicine, which will appear on this site once it is published.

In the meantime here are the resources I came across, should anyone be interested:

How web 2.0 is changing medicine BMJ  2006;333:1283-1284 (23 December)

  1. Nice way to whet the appetite 😉

    I’m very interested in this subject. Looking forward to your publication. In what journal will it be published? Open Access I presume?

    And thanks for the mention,

    Jacqueline (still in a split)

  2. It will be in the August Journal of Evidence Based mental health which isn’t open access alas. I do however have permission to post it on this site however.

    Part of the article is about whether journals can sustain their current subscription model in the advent of Web 2.0 actually.
