May 07, 2017

The Lancet has partnered with over 40 Elsevier-published journals and 11 learned societies to launch a new H1N1 Flu Resource Centre for healthcare professionals at TheLancet. Developed byThe Lancet editors, this new online information clearinghouse aggregates infectious disease and public health information from across Elsevier's spectrum of content.

To upgrade the level of expert analysis and advice on the prevention, detection, diagnosis, and treatment of the influenza A H1N1 (swine flu), The Lancet, the respected international medical journal, today announced the launch of its H1N1 Flu Resource Centre , a complimentary microsite for physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and healthcare professionals across the globe. Among the many H1N1-related websites, TheLancet's H1N1 Flu Resource Centre offers an unparalleled scope and depth of content.

"The H1N1 Flu Resource Centre fulfills The Lancet's mission of improving outcomes in health and in the business of health," said Richard Horton, Editor-in-Chief of The Lancet journals. "Healthcare professionals will have immediate access to timely, accurate information aggregated from diverse online resources and journals. The global medical community will benefit from this resource."

Led by John McConnell, Editor of The Lancet Infectious Diseases, the editorial team has scanned thousands of journals published by Elsevier for articles on the scientific, clinical, and public health aspects of the H1N1 virus. Articles selected by The Lancet editors have been categorised into relevant topics and full-text PDFs made available for free download from the H1N1 Resource Centre. John McConnell added: "We are especially grateful to our society partners for allowing us to host their content at TheLancet and for making this freely available to all visitors to the H1N1 Resource Centre."
