The Journal now produces an electronic version of each issue produced specifically for psychiatry residents. The Residents’ Journal contains an electronic table of contents of the current American Journal of Psychiatry, with special links to full text of the articles and to AJP Audio, a downloadable MP3 file featuring highlights from the issue. In addition, this e-mail bulletin contains three exclusive features:
1) Journal Club Kit, in which one of the month’s featured articles is presented with an overview, discussion questions, and an editorial by a senior member of the field that places the article into context and outlines its strengths and limitations.
2) Clinical Education Article, in which case presentations are given to illustrate a major point in clinical practice or to highlight unique treatment approaches.
3) A guide from one of the editors on what to look for in the Journal.
What has made this initiative particularly lively are editorials from Residents, who are providing instructive cases, descriptions of unique programs, perspectives on training and career development, research findings, and comments arising from journal club discussions. I would like to take this opportunity to thank those who have contributed to the inaugural issues of the Residents’ Journal:
