Many medical and nursing journals now use Twitter. On their Twitter sites, they share links to journal articles and sometimes other news items in the field. We have made a Twitter list with 116 of these journal sites:
The base of our list is the National Library of Medicine’s list of Core Clinical journals. There are 119 titles in that list, and we were able to find Twitter feeds for about 75 of them. The other Twitter sites on our list we found in Laika Spoetnik’s Twitter journal list and from Googling likely word combinations.
Not all tweets are for journal articles. The proportion of tweets that are journal articles, as opposed to other news items, varies in different journal feeds.
