Introducing New Features for Reactions Weekly for 2020

From January 2020, we are introducing changes to Reactions Weekly to streamline the product and improve the reader experience. The changes we are introducing will focus the content on the most clinically important adverse reaction news of significance to healthcare practitioners, researchers and regulators. The new features will increase our coverage of drug safety research, simplify the presentation of case report articles, and improve the ability to identify key data at a glance.

Specifically, the changes include:

  • To increase our coverage of drug safety research, there will be a table of additional drug safety news articles relevant to our readers.
  • To streamline the presentation of case report articles, author comments and reporter country will be removed to focus on the most relevant information for our target readers.
  • To make it easy to identify the key data at a glance, non-serious case reports will be presented in a table rather than as individual articles.
