The American Medical Informatics Association's bimonthly journal, Journal
of the American Medical Informatics Association (JAMIA), presents
peer-reviewed articles that assist physicians, informaticians, scientists,
nurses, and other health care professionals develop and apply medical
informatics to patient care, teaching, research, and health care
administration. JAMIA has rapidly established a reputation for presenting
high-quality, cutting-edge information. Each issue contains
state-of-the-art reviews, discussion forums, and invited editorials
presented as brief reviews or full-length papers. A variety of formats
accommodates work at all stages, from model formulation through definitive

JAMIA online contains the full content of each issue of the journal,
including all figures and tables, beginning with the January/February 1999
issue (Volume 6, Number 1). The full text is searchable by keyword, and
the cited references include hyperlinks to Medline and to the online full
text of many other frequently-cited journals. Abstract files are online
beginning with the January/February 1994 issue (Volume 1, Number 1).

Each issue will be placed online approximately on the date it is mailed to
subscribers; therefore the online site will be available prior to receipt
of your paper copy. The March/April 2000 issue (Volume 7, Number 2) is
the latest issue online. Online readers may want to sign up for the eTOC
(electronic Table of Contents) service, which will deliver each new
issue's table of contents via email. In addition, the tables of contents
of upcoming issues will be placed online as "Planned Table of Contents for
Future Issues." A planned table of contents is currently available for
the May/June 2000 issue (Volume 7, Number 3).

The web site also provides access to information about the journal (such
as Instructions to Authors, the Editorial Board, and subscription
information and subscription ordering), as well as access to the Society
web site.

There is currently a free trial period for access to JAMIA, which will be
available until August 31, 2000. Subsequent to the free trial, access to
the full-text of articles will be available by institutional license,
which comes with all institutional subscriptions, or by individual
subscription available to print subscribers or Society members. All other
access (e.g., to Abstracts, eTOCs, searching, Instructions to Authors)
will remain freely available.

We very much encourage you to sign the guestbook on your first visit to
the site. This will take only a minute or two, and it will provide us
with helpful information about who the online readers are and how they are
connecting to the site. In addition, we would appreciate comments,
critiques, questions, or suggestions from you; these can be sent via the
Feedback button found on all pages of the site. Feedback from readers
will help us decide what new features would be most valuable for the site
and how well it is working for its readers.

The site is being produced in conjunction with Stanford University's
HighWire Press, which also works with other medical and research journals,
including Science and BMJ. You may find a list of online medical and
research journals and their URLs at: or
