Spike - I subscribe to both JCP and The Archives of General Psychiatry (I had access to The American Journal of Psychiatry at the clinic, and now I borrow my pdoc's - it is outrageously priced; especially at the Canadian dollar - > $400 CDN/yr; where the other 2 are about $200 CDN/yr; besides Nancy Andreasen pissed me off at a conference a couple of years back :^)

I find JCP to be more clincally relevant than AGP or AJP. Also, a lot of the tables and charts in JCP studies are very good; especially Stahl's "Pearls of Wisdom" summaries and many of his editorial synopses of current thought. I keep enlargements in a binder for quick reference.

It is true that a lot of the drug company-funded studies in JCP are slanted, but as long as you look for the funding, it is easy to read between the lines to see what the study is really saying. The reviewers are fairly good at making them expose information, even though some of it may not be as overt as it could be.

My not some humble opinion - Cam
