The "New England Journal of Medicine" is more than the world's most-quoted medical journal. It can be your direct link to the most important developments in medicine ! Each week, doctors read it because they know it is the central information source for crucial medical studies. Every article represents an advance in medical knowledge; none has ever been previously published. Thirty-four percent of all articles published were written by researchers outside the United States. The NEJM's editorial board has several members from countries outside the United States who help to give the NEJM a global perspective.
