Manhattan Research's ePharma Physician® study ranks the top online journals by physician visitation

Manhattan ResearchThe New England Journal of Medicine and American Family Physician rank as top online medical journals among U.S. primary care physicians, according to the just released ePharma Physician® v8.0 study by pharmaceutical and healthcare market research company Manhattan Research. Comparing the top online journals of 2007 to this year's batch, the Annals of Internal Medicine and American Family Physician have been two of the most successful publications in increasing online physician readership.

Reading online journals has been one of the fastest growing professional activities for physicians, growing at a double-digit rate over the past three years. The ePharma Physician® v8.0 survey found that physicians expect to increase their use of the Internet as a source of clinical news and information, making it critical for publications like the American College of Physicians Observer, the Cleveland Clinic, the Journal of General Internal Medicine, and others to maintain engaging online versions of their journals.
