        This site provides access to complete journal issues for volumes 1-14 (1984-1997).    Adobe Acrobat Reader must be installed on your machine to access these files.  A link to the Adobe site is provided to assist you in acquiring this software.  To navigate the journal backruns, click on the year in the table.  Links to the issues for that year will be presented.  When an issue is selected, Acrobat Reader will be invoked (you will have the choice to view the file or download it to your hard drive).  Initially, you will be presented with the Table of Contents page for quick review of the articles.  A button at the top of the page allows you to link to the full issue, which you may browse using the article and author links in the left frame of the screen, search using the "binoculars" icon in the Acrobat Reader tool bar.


        A SiteSearch database has been created to facilitate searching for individual articles by author, title, keyword, etc.   Links are provided from records for individual articles to PubMed/Medline records.  From their site, searchers can click on the "Related Articles" button to retrieve records for other articles in the Medline database that address related topics.
