To create the greatest impact, ideas, research, and innovations need to be disseminated beyond the academic community to a wider audience that includes patients, health care workers, clinicians, stakeholders, and the general health-concerned public. Digital Health Science News is a blog that aims to provide a platform for all audiences to engage with academic literature. Science writers and journalists can find press releases, stakeholders and the general public can find article summaries, and all readers can learn more about hot topics in scholarly publishing and digital health research. By increasing the accessibility to open and accurate science, people can make informed decisions when using technology to improve their health and wellbeing.

We invite authors of JMIR Publications papers to submit press releases and lay summaries of their accepted articles. Email us and include relevant photos and a document of your press release or summary.
