This week, the American Association of Neurological Surgeons launched their public iTunes U site. This site will now be the primary portal for the Journal of Neurosurgery podcast series (currently Journal of Neurosurgery, Journal of Neurosurgery: Pediatrics and Neurosurgical Focus—Journal of Neurosurgery: Spine podcasts will debut later this month). In addition, the site features an “Areas of Concentration” category, with content for many neurosurgical subspecialties. New content will be added continuously, including video content, podcasts from the AANS and the JNS, and the migration of the AANS/SNS Neurosurgical Online Sessions.
With this launch, and the inclusion of our Podcast Archive content in the iTunes U site, the JNS Publishing Group will be removing our separate podcast feed from the iTunes Store, effective February 14, 2011. We encourage subscribers to our podcast through iTunes to transfer their subscriptions to the iTunes U channels, and to check out the other available content there: http://itunes.apple.com/us/institution/aans-american-association/id408873302.
Please note that we are not discontinuing the Podcast Archive as a separate entity. We recognize that not everyone uses iTunes, and we will maintain the same access to podcast content for those who subscribe directly to our feed. Thanks to all for your continued support of our podcast initiative.
