BEEM-specific publications do not include individual research efforts. Instead they are defined by EBM or KT content published in the journals’ sections of evidence based medicine reviews, preferably with the BEEM name attached but thus far only the Journal of Emergency Medicine has permitted this credit. This list is current as of 04 July 2013.
