Scope and Value of Back Files
The Annals Back Files collection encompasses the full text of articles from 1927 to 1992. Should your institution not require the full file, a partial file (1966-1992) can be purchased. The digitizing of the Annals Back Files collection is an important under-taking that has numerous benefits for information professionals and patrons. Important studies that have not been available electronically are now readily accessible online at annals.org*.
Patrons will find articles on a variety of issues that were important in the development of internal medicine, such as health policy and economics, infectious diseases, cardiology, rheumatology, and more. The expanded back file archive makes it possible to view significant findings of the past along with the newest studies from Annals of Internal Medicine. It serves as a valuable enhancement to your existing Annals subscription.
