ABSTRACT
This article presents information about contributors to "ACP Journal Club." "Evidence Based Medicine," published bimonthly by the BMJ Publishing Group starting in 1995, has a primary care focus, including relevant content on obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics, surgery, psychiatry, and general and family practice. The Cochrane Library provides a regularly published source of large numbers of high-quality systematic reviews on clinically relevant topics. Both new and updated reviews are of interest, and almost every review meets criteria for abstracting in the evidence-based journals.
