In 2014, the vast majority of published biomedical research is still hidden behind paywalls rather than open access. For more than a decade, similar restrictions over other digitally available content have engendered illegal activity.

Can an Internet-Based Health Risk Assessment Highlight Problems of Heart Disease Risk Factor Awareness? A Cross-Sectional Analysis
by Justin B Dickerson, Catherine J McNeal, Ginger Tsai, Cathleen M Rivera, Matthew Lee Smith, Robert L Ohsfeldt, Marcia G Ory
(Published on 18 Apr 2014)
Background: Health risk assessments are becoming more popular as a tool to conveniently and effectively reach community-dwelling adults who may be at risk for serious chronic conditions such as coronary heart disease (CHD). The use of such instruments to improve adults’ risk factor awareness and concordance with clinically measured risk factor values could be an opportunity to advance public health knowledge and build effective interventions. Objective: The objective of this study was to determine if an Internet-based health risk assessment can highlight important aspects of agreement between respondents’ self-reported and clinically measured CHD risk factors for community-dwelling adults who may be at risk for CHD. Methods: Data from an Internet-based cardiovascular health...
