About ACP JournalWise

ACPJournalWise continuously screens the medical literature to alert you to recently published articles on the topics and from the journals you pick.

Research Alerts

ACP JournalWise screens every issue of over 120 journals using two steps:

  1. Methodological Review: health research experts classify articles according to medical disciplines and rate them using standard criteria to identify scientifically strong studies and reviews
  2. Clinical Review: at least 3 clinicians in the relevant discipline rate the newsworthiness and clinical relevance of the scientifically strong articles along a 7 point scale

You select the medical disciplines and the rating thresholds for the article alerts you want to receive. Check new alerts by logging into the service from your smart phone, tablet, or computer. You can also opt to receive e-mail alerts of new articles at a frequency you choose.

Journal Tables of Contents

ACP JournalWise knows you don’t have time to read all of the medical journals you would like to, so it provides a convenient single location to keep up with what’s new in your favorite journals. Use ACP JournalWise to browse Tables of Contents of journals you pick from a list of 200 as new issues become available. The TOC article titles link to abstracts of selected articles on the journals’ own web sites. Availability of the full-text articles will be via each journals’ existing access policies.

Folder Sharing

Save links to articles in folders you create. You can share those articles and folders with colleagues who also use ACP JournalWise, and you can in turn follow your colleagues’ folders.


ACP JournalWise maintains a searchable database of quality-assessed articles published as far back as 2003. Search the database for highest quality evidence, filtered by specialties you choose.
