JAAD smartphone apps

JAAD is accessible for the iPhone and Android phones via publisher Elsevier’s HealthAdvance apps.

To download the app to your phone, search “HealthAdvance” within the Apple App Store or Google Play store. Once you have downloaded the app, select "Browse" at the bottom to locate JAAD among the variety of Elsevier journals included.

All users can access abstracts via the app, but to access the full spectrum of JAAD content, members must register and claim access on the JAAD.org website. To claim access, visit www.jaad.org/content/mobileaccessinstructions. Be sure to follow the instructions numbered 1 through 5.

Once you have claimed access, you will be able to:

  • Set the current issue of JAAD as the app startup screen. To do so, select "Options" from the top right of the JAAD screen.
  • View full-text articles, including abstracts, images, and charts.
  • Search within JAAD (or across all journals in the HealthAdvance catalog).
  • Bookmark articles.
  • E-mail Web links to yourself and colleagues.
