New Journal (NEJM Evidence) & Upcoming Workshop on Evidence Synthesis

Thomas Jefferson University Libraries just added a new journal to our collection – NEJM Evidence. The journal, published by the New England Journal of Medicine, is an online-only, peer-reviewed general medical journal. NEJM Evidence, published monthly, will highlight original research and new ideas in clinical trial design and clinical decision-making.

And you can gain skills to find more evidence synthesis publications at our workshop, “Evidence Synthesis for Evidence-Based Teaching,” this March. Greg Laynor, Senior Librarian at Scott Memorial Library, will lead the virtual workshop on Friday, March 11, where he’ll share tips to find evidence synthesis publications about teaching practices. The workshop will also cover options for publishing evidence synthesis projects on education topics, such as the Best Evidence Medical Education (BEME) Collaboration.

In the meantime, check out NEJM Evidence. The journal publishes:

  • Original research, clinical trials, and other clinically grounded work (e.g., epidemiology studies, first-in-human trials, meta-analyses) that validate or challenge prior clinical findings
  • Standard reviews, systematic reviews, and other review types that contextualize research findings to accelerate clinical adoption of new evidence
  • Case studies and reviews of clinical trial methodology that enhance understanding of trial strengths and weaknesses
  • Curbside consult series that addresses common patient care issues
