Accelerating Scholarship and Improving Patient Outcomes with an Online, Open-Access Journal

In a case study of AcademyHealth’s eGEMs, this webinar makes a strong case for open-access publishing, addressing common concerns about the quality of scholarship and the rigor of the peer review process in new publishing models.

Launched in 2012, eGEMs is designed to keep pace with the rapid growth in the availability of electronic clinical data for research and practice, focusing on the process that leads to research findings rather than solely on the end results. In this fast-moving research environment, eGEMs uses the Digital Commons platform to speed the pace of traditional peer-reviewed publication, share cutting-edge methods and technical procedures with a wide audience, and facilitate dialogue and collaboration between health-systems researchers.
