Two centuries of the New England Journal of Medicine – now available from the British Library

Prestigious medical journal articles now available via British Library Document Supply

The latest articles from one of the world’s leading medical journals are now available from the British Library’s Document Supply service. The New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) is among the most widely read and cited medical journals anywhere in the world. Now, following a licence agreement signed with the British Library, the Library’s Document Supply service is able to provide electronic articles, from volume one in 1812 to the most recent issue.

Published by the Massachusetts Medical Society, NEJM (NEJM.org) aims to keep practising physicians abreast of the very latest developments in clinical research. It has extensive readership internationally and is cited in scientific literature more frequently than any other biomedical journal.

The licence allows the British Library to supply NEJM articles through its copyright fee paid service as well as under the fair dealing provision of the Copyright Act, to support education and learning. See: www.bl.uk/articles

Richard Ebdon, Licensing and Copyright Manager at the British Library, said: “We are delighted that electronic articles from the New England Journal of Medicine will now be available to our Document Supply customers. By adding this title to the wealth of electronic biomedical resources already available via Document Supply we hope to augment further our superb offering to researchers in medicine, pharmaceuticals and the life sciences.”
