The JCB is a form-based question/answer entry sheet; its content is based on JAMA's Users' Guides to the Medical Literature. The JCB incorporates these evidence based questions to help the user along in journal reviews. The journal club reviewer will be presented with appropriate questions to answer for the subject i.e. questions relating to diagnosis will appear only for diagnostic articles. In addition, we have supplied ONLINE CALCULATORS to assist in the review. These calculators are embedded within the online form so that the reviewer can simply enter the appropriate data during the journal review.
After entering the data and submitting the form, the reviewer will receive a printable (or to be saved on your hard drive) page containing all of the appropriate questions/answers and calculations regarding that journal review.
The submitted journal will then be appropriately formatted for entry into the Journal Club Bank. The reviewer can modify/edit/delete the journal entry as he or she wishes by contacting Benson Yeh M.D.
Lastly, the journal club review will be indexed and made searchable by our online search engine. This engine catalogs every word, number, and letter so that a search can be made according to the REVIEWER'S NAME OR INSTITUTION, or by any part of the original articles citation (Author name, subject, keywords, etc).
