JECT Digital Transition for AmSECT Members: 

AmSECT voted to discontinue its printing of the Journal of Extracorporeal Technology and will move to a digital-only format in 2020. Here is what led to this decision:

  • The digital age is upon us and AmSECT needs to keep up with the times. It’s also our small contribution to the environment by reducing paper consumption. 
  • The Society will save money that can be used to support other strategic initiatives. Funds saved from printing and mailing four issues is significant enough to make a difference.
  • AmSECT hopes that readers will spend more time reading JECT with this improved digital access. Take it with you on planes, trains, or in the pump room and catch up on the latest research in our profession.

Is there any way to continue receiving a print copy of JECT?
