All SGIM publications will be digital-only starting in 2020.

In an effort to reduce our carbon footprint, our premier publication, the Journal of General Internal Medicine (JGIM), will be available digital-only starting in January 2020. SGIM Forum and ACLGIM Leadership Forum will also be available digital-only.

Why will JGIM be available only online?

SGIM is taking steps to reduce its carbon footprint in response to our members’ encouragement. By going digital we’ll significantly cut our use of paper and our carbon footprint. The tens of thousands of dollars we save on printing and postage will be invested into other programs and opportunities for you, our members. And now, there’s no waiting for publications to arrive in the mail—you can quickly access them online right when they’re published!

How will I access JGIM?

When the latest issue of JGIM is available, you will receive an email table of contents alerting you. Rather than clicking on the links in that email, go directly to the SGIM website and log in to your account. Click on the JGIM tab aon the right hand side (not at the top!) of your member account page to read the journal.

What if I want to continue receiving JGIM in print?

Full and emeritus renewing members in good standing who renew no later than February 15, 2020 can opt to continue receiving their print subscription of JGIM, SGIM Forum, or ACLGIM Forum by mail for a $20 fee.

What about other SGIM publications?

SGIM Forum and ACLGIM Leadership Forum are always available on their respective websites, under the Publications pages. Starting in 2020, we will no longer be mailing print versions, and they will continue to be available online as downloadable PDFs.
