So what’s coming up for 2013? In the first quarter we plan to launch some new online education initiatives and if these go well we’ll be building on those throughout the year. We’re also building more partnerships so that we can continue to add value to your subscription and of course as subscriber numbers grow, so will the journals. I look forward to sharing 2013 with you and I wish you all a very happy and healthy New Year.

A discussion of low back pain prevention and treatment


Welcome


JAN 2013


There’s no peace for the wicked publishers these days, believe me. As a small team there’s a lot to do! At the beginning of 2012


we launched our iPad app, then we built our custom-SCORM compliant eLearning system through which we now deliver the quizzes and CPD certificates. Then we revamped the payment system so that you could purchase in smaller timeframes than a year and added more flexibility on the payment options available. And at the end of last year we launched our Android app and our Kindle Fire app. Inbetween I confess that we were rooted to the TV for 6 weeks watching the biggest sporting spectacle this country will see for some time! What a year!
