The AARC’s peer reviewed science journal has just taken a big leap forward in the digital age. Thanks to an updated website, AARC members can now read RESPIRATORY CARE papers in an online “digimag” format, an HTML format with cross linking to references, and via a new “ePub ahead of print” feature.

  • The new digimag format allows you to turn the pages of the Journal much as you would turn the pages of the print edition of the publication, making it easy to read RESPIRATORY CARE on your computer screen in a format identical to the one you’re accustomed to seeing in the print edition.

  • The new HTML format with cross linking to references is especially designed for folks who want instant access to the papers cited in Journal articles. With this format, each of the references is actually a hypertext link that will take you right to the articles being referenced.

  • The addition of “ePub ahead of print” papers gives you the chance to read the latest research accepted for publication by the Journal months before it appears in the print edition, ensuring a rapid dissemination of the most recent scientific evidence in the field. Available in PDF format, these papers are generally up on the website within a couple of weeks of acceptance. 

All of these new features are available free of charge to AARC members and other subscribers, who can access them by logging onto

Wondering what else is new at the Journal? Stay tuned to your April issue of AARC Times for an interview with Editor-in-Chief Dean Hess, PhD, RRT, FAARC, about these new features plus lots of other exciting developments that have been taking place at our profession’s premier science journal over the past few years.
