Docphin Current Awareness Portal

Docphin is a free online portal that connects to our institutional journal
subscriptions to the most popular medical journals.
Registration requires selecting a specialty which then gives you
5-10 of the most used journals in that specialty, but you can
always search for specific ones and add/delete what you want. It
also includes news sources like the NYTimes Health section and Time
Magazine Health.  

Select Wake Forest University when you register and it
"knows" our proxy prefix and will prompt for credentials when
off-campus. Scroll through titles and it pre-loads the abstract, and when you click "View This Article", it will take you straight to the article or to the
Pubmed record and give you all our LinkOut options from there.

There are apps for iPhone/iPad and Android devices, and integration with Evernote is built-in. You can also use from any browser, which may be easier for setting up your preferences.

Other features:

  • Landmark Articles - the practice-changing ones, just a couple
    per year in selected specialties
  • Medstream - health news from popular media like CNN, Forbes,
    NPR, NYT, etc
  • Saved Articles - will bookmark articles to read later
  • Alerts - set up by title keyword or author

We've added it to our Mobile page, but Docphin can be useful to keep up on the literature even if you don't use tablet or smartphone.

If you encounter any problems or have questions, please contact Julie James jujames@wakehealth.edu
