ABSTRACT
This article presents information about "ACP Journal Club," as of January 2004. The journal is undergoing some developments to enhance the match between health care research reports and the reader's own practice information needs. It has developed an online rating system that polls many more physicians to determine the level of interest in a given article from the individual perspectives of physicians in primary care, hospital-based general internal medicine and relevant subspecialties of internal medicine. This system is now being used to assess the practical relevance of articles that meet the journal's criteria for scientific merit and is being used to help select the content featured in the journal. The primary objective is to help physicians keep up to date with information that they believe is truly relevant to the care of their patients.
