Digital Publications Offer Extra Added Attractions
If you’re still limiting yourself to the print editions of AARC Times and Respiratory Care, you’re missing out on lots of extra added attractions that can only come from reading our digital versions. Both the magazine and Journal offer flipbook-style formats that make it easy to navigate through the issue, plus lots of hyperlinks to more information. Digital offerings at the Journal also include an “epubs ahead of print” feature that lets you keep up with the latest research months before it hits the paper edition and an HTML version (click on “ingentaconnect”) with hyperlinks to all the references in the papers. Read the latest issue of AARC Times and the flipbook or Ingenta versions of Respiratory Care now.

If you love the digital versions, you can have that as your main option. We're happy to switch you to an all-digital or semi-digital publications delivery. Read more.
