Wiley-Blackwell to launch new apps for health science journals

From the press release: Wiley-Blackwell, the scientific, technical, medical and scholarly publishing business of John Wiley & Sons, Inc., is launching new mobile applications for selected health science journals, accessible via iPhone, Blackberry, Android, Symbian, PalmOS, and WAP devices.

The applications, which will be freely available, will allow for the mobile delivery of title and abstract listings of articles with a feature that will enable users to create a “reading list” of desired full-text articles, available from the user’s desktop computer through Wiley Online Library. The apps will provide the full-text of a selection of articles, and mobile content will be pushed to the mobile application as it is added to Wiley Online Library. Additional features include listings of upcoming events, society news, and publication information. Easily navigable, the applications present an optimized reading experience from various mobile devices.

“Wiley is very actively leveraging formats to enable the digital delivery of journal content,” said Shawn Morton, Publishing Director, Medicine at Wiley-Blackwell. “We are confident physicians utilizing mobile devices to enhance patient care will embrace the new Wiley Health Mobile Apps.”

The apps will deliver content for a variety of health science subjects including academic emergency medicine, cancer, cardiology, epilepsy, transplantation, rheumatology, sexual medicine, and hospital medicine.

The first application to be launched is for the American Journal of Transplantation (AJT), delivering fast, high quality content in organ and tissue transplantation and the related sciences. In this AJT app, users have real-time access to article abstracts, The AJT Report, and the latest news and information from the field. With access to a range of topics including thoracic transplantation (heart, lung), abdominal transplantation (kidney, liver, pancreas, islets) and transplantation of tissues, users can create reading lists tailored to their own interests and customize the app through “My Feeds” with other relevant information. This content can then be shared via email or through social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook. Download the app for any mobile device by visting http://amjtrans.mwap.at/.

“Given the highly technical nature of transplantation, transplant clinicians have long been on the leading edge of new technological advances, including their use of electronic formats for real-time reporting of outcomes data and integration of multidisciplinary practices,” said Dr. Allan D. Kirk, AJT Editor-in-Chief. “Transplant clinicians can now have AJT in their hands at their patients' bedsides, and I am convinced this will help drive evidence-based practice and ultimately help improve the care of patients undergoing transplant procedures.”

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
