The volume of clinical research continues to grow, yet the standards to establish and validate claims, especially as related to clinical practice, have not followed suit. NEJM Evidence expands the corpus of published research with a focus on providing more context and critical evaluation of the methods and results to support clinical decision-making, but does so in a way that respects the time and commitment of the practitioner.
Frequency: Monthly (12 issues/year) with continuous publication
The process of generating evidence is a key area of focus for NEJM Evidence. We push readers to evaluate the reasoning behind the complex decisions that investigators make in trial design and execution and to assess the quality of evidence produced in trials. Our goal is to build a community that takes a sophisticated approach to evaluating evidence and assessing its impact on clinical decisions.
NEJM Evidence also guides readers toward a deeper understanding of the statistical methods used in trials. We provide concise, digestible explanations of these methods and how to interpret the resulting data. In addition, we introduce readers to emerging statistical methods and types of data that will play an increasingly prominent role in future trials.
The journal publishes content relevant across all general medical disciplines with an emphasis on cardiology, oncology, and infectious diseases. Physician-scientists, general medicine clinicians, subspecialty physicians, and clinical trialists will all benefit from this publication.
NEJM Evidence physician-editors are dedicated to advancing clinical medicine and working with clinicians on improving clinical trial studies.
