Dear HIFA members
Thank you very much to the additional suggestions for our list of open access resources. I have updated the list – and we have also decided to share it with successful applicants to the BMA Information Fund.
I thought that members might also find it helpful to see the list including the recent updates.
Best wishes to all for the holiday season
