Welcome to our archives
■ We hope that making our earlier articles accessible only adds to your reading experience.

One of the revelations from this publication's online presence is the enormous reader interest in articles from weeks, months and years past. Every year for which content is available draws visitors.
The practice management article that should have been clipped or the news story with the argument-settling fact were all but impossible for most readers to retrieve in a pre-Internet era. Now, our extensive online archive, paired with search and article collections by topic, puts thousands of stories at your fingertips. Add to that a growing collection of Web-only content, such as our interactive tool for tracking health-plan earnings and a "Vault" page that will take you directly to articles and multimedia on topics of enduring interest (link).
Most of that older content has been behind an access-control wall. By knocking down that barrier, we are making available 10 years of full content and several years more of selected earlier articles. All told, about 15,000 articles now can be searched and read.
We invite our readers to visit the archives and link to our articles from their own sites, blogs and posts.
While on the subject of what's new, check out our latest mobile version (link). We have just added full text, pinch and zoom, search and collections of content by topic. We offer mobile headlines by e-mail or RSS.
Presenting the latest news and useful information for physicians is what our readers expect from us. The opening of our archives adds an extra dimension to that, letting site visitors retrieve and read reporting that remains meaningful and helpful in navigating an ever-changing world of medicine.
