Promote your research through Read by QxMD!

ANZCA's Institutional Edition of Read by QxMD allows the ANZCA Library to create "campaigns" to promote significant published research papers to its over 2000 ANZCA & FPM users.

The papers contained in the campaign display as Promoted Research and is highly visible when the user logs into the Read by QxMD app or receives an alert email.

Users are then able to link through to the full-text (where available) or request an article via document delivery if there is no full-text available via the ANZCA library.

To date Read by QxMD campaigns for promoted papers has resulted in 42,732 impressions and 1800 direct views.

Previous campaigns have included:

  • RELIEF study
  • BALANCED study
  • PADDI study

If you are interested in setting up a Read by QxMD campaign for your paper/s or research project, then contact the ANZCA library via the library feedback form.
