Dominic Mitchell, the BMJ Group’s web manager explains how readers can get the most from OEM’s website, highlighting several important features

As the nature of publishing has shifted in a digital age, the role of a publisher has changed from guardian to gateway, and hence our websites need to facilitate finding content quickly and efficiently. Several new online features make Occupational and Environmental Medicine (OEM) work for you. With greater interaction you can get maximum use with minimal effort.


We are all familiar with emails from websites that give us up-to-date news and offers, trying to pull you to their content. Our sites have the same email features, but we will only send you things you ask for.

Did you know that each new issue goes online up to 2 weeks before the print issue drops through your door? You can sign up to receive an email telling you when a new issue is ready. If you are searching for past articles, you can browse (see below) by topic, by issue or by date. Why not receive an alert when a new article is added to any of these categories, instead of continuously checking the site? To sign up to these alerting services, go to the home page and follow the “New content alerts” link (fig 1).
