DynaMed, a clinical reference tool, offered by Himmelfarb Library has published their list. To create DynaMed, a continuously updated evidence-based tool, DynaMed editors review a huge segment of the medical literature. Last year, they considered more than 28,000 articles and integrated more than 11,000 pieces of new evidence into DynaMed. Of those articles, DynaMed’s editors have identified the most important articles from 2014:
