It seems to me that modalities for keeping up with research are far more limited than they could be today. What if each journal article was accompanied by an audio-visual presentation? Keeping up with research is very important, but also very time-consuming. If articles could be put into animated presentation or even podcast format, one could keep up with cutting-edge research while cutting out visual supports or doing dishes. The easier it is for us to access, the better our practice will be. Of course, classic journal format is still appropriate, but why are we limited to only that medium when other formats could result in greater dissemination, and thereby greater application?

Thank you for your suggestion. The journals team is planning on incorporating more multimedia associated with the journals. The first step with the new ASHAWire platform was to increase accessibility on the full range of devices (from desktop to tablet to phone); next, the focus will be on multimedia additions, including tools for summarizing and adding context to the research. Stay tuned!
