Do you have time to read 3000 research papers a year?

3000 is almost how many that were published of relevance to podiatry and related topics in 2016. Did you read them all? On top of that, there are social media and blog posts about relevant topics. That is a lot if you want to stay up-to-date.

How did I work out it was almost 3000? Newsbot is the username over at Podiatry Arena that is used to post all the research, news, press releases, etc that are relevant to Podiatry. In 2016, Newsbot posted an average of 7.6 times a day. That is 7.6 bits of new research, news, reviews and commentary of relevance to Podiatry every single day (ie 2774 posts in 2016). Admittingly some of that is bad research and commentary and a lot of it is certainly not directly relevant to all areas of clinical practice for everyone, but it does give you an idea of the magnitude of what is published.

A lot of primary sources are tracked every day to monitor for new material that is posted as Newsbot. Not a lot is missed. When it is missed secondary sources are used (and hat tips are given to those who find it).

This raises the problem of how is a busy clinician expected to stay on top of the 3000? Or probably, more importantly, the smaller number that is of direct relevance to them. The obviously way is to follow Newsbot at Podiatry Arena. There is this page with the 20 most recent threads and 20 most recent posts and this page with all the new posts.
