There’s an App for that 3.0

The summer solstice (winter for my friends in the antipodes) occurred yesterday, and the languor of that season is upon us.  Not to mention it’s the weekend!

I will brief this morning.

If you haven’t had a chance to see our recent posts about apps for clinical use in sports medicine, I’d encourage you to check out ‘versions’ 1.0 and 2.0 and let me know what you think on twitter @cjsmonline or in the comments section of this post.  Or check some older posts on patient education apps here and here.

And I wanted to encourage readers to take the CJSM polls, available on this blog or on the main journal web page.

We’ve reformatted the main journal web page so that the poll is on the upper right in a viewer’s field of vision.  The current poll will also start appearing on this blog page.  I am eager to get more feedback on clinical sports medicine issues from the readership.  I plan over time to use the polls at times to ‘push’ the content we might discuss on this page:  that is, polls can help determine what are some of the most interesting, maybe even controversial, topics to talk about in sports medicine.

I also am eager to use the polls to highlight the powerful, original research that is published every other month in CJSM.

So…..before you climb into your hammock, or hunker down by the fireplace if you’re in NZ, click one of the radio buttons above.  Thanks as ever for participating and reading, and we’ll see you in the blogosphere next week.

And did you know there are proper ways to cite social media (e.g. twitter posts, blog posts, etc.) in medical journals?  iMedical apps told me so!
