Exclusive access to the online content of American Medical News becomes an AMA member benefit early this month.

The move reflects a growing emphasis at the AMA to strengthen its connection with members by offering, for example, more exclusive benefits and seeking greater member input in setting the Association's advocacy agenda. In the case of AMNews, members will have access to current content as well as a searchable site archives covering the full text of issues from 2000 on.

"Members support this publication with their dues and as contacts for information and news," AMNews Editor Benjamin Mindell said about the change. "We believe that members should benefit from their support by gaining exclusive access to the site."

In addition to AMA members, paid subscribers to the print edition will also have access to the site. Details are available online (link).

The target date for the change is June 1, which falls after the press time of this printed edition of AMNews.
