Access full text articles using one app

Thank you to Kate Donovan, RN for bringing this app to our attention!

Read, by QxMD provides access to journal table of contents, abstracts, and full text articles from a long list of medical journals.  Users can also add the articles to a “favorites” folder, post about them on social media and search PubMed from the app.  Rather than having to download the apps for each individual journal you read, Read allows users to follow their favorite journals from one location.

If you do not have a Harvard ID # and password you will be able to access any Open Access articles (articles that are freely available to everyone).  If you do have a Harvard ID you can specify you Proxy as “Harvard” and Edit the proxy so it remembers your username and password – that way you will be able to access many of the medical journal to which Harvard subscribes. Handy!

For more information about some of the app’s strengths and weaknesses, Read from QxMD, read the review from

We also have Read (and a number of other apps) downloaded onto our iPads for you to try out.
