The Oxford Handbooks are an amazing resource and my books of choice for every rotation, so being able to access these for free and download them is extremely helpful! My only concern is that on this website they are not available in their printed format, but instead as not very nice-looking long texts, which significantly detracts from their usability and appeal. I’ll have to use them for a while to decide how and how much I am going to use the online form. Nevertheless, thank you very much for this excellent opportunity!
Thank you for your helpful feedback. We’ll pass on your comment about the difference between the online and printed formats to the publisher.
I agree it seems odd that everything is in a long string when the USP of the books is one topic per page, which seems ideally suited to the web and mobile.
That’s good and posted on EEMeC and Fbk – but the link is broken by a space at the end, and it’s really difficult to find those individual texts without direct links.
Thank you very much for alerting your networks about this trial. Apologies for the url problem – this has now been corrected. I have also added in extra links to the individual e-books in the blog post – we’ll pass on to the publisher that finding the individual e-books isn’t very easy.
These e-books are now in the process of being subscribed to (along with about 25 other Oxford Med Handbooks).
That’s excellent news, thanks!
