Some or all of these articles may be protected by copyright. Please refer to the publisher’s copyright notice and policies.
Note that the article lists with links provided are one option for obtaining journal articles. Reviewing designated articles through other means, including hard copies, is also acceptable for the Pilot Project/ABCC. Articles and fee structures listed on this website are subject to change.
When accessing articles from publisher websites, we recommend that you download a copy of a file once and consult that copy when taking exams. Some sites may limit the amount of articles that you can access per month without a subscription; in those cases, downloading an article repeatedly may cause you to be blocked from accessing any articles until the next month begins.
If you are a member of a professional society (AACAP, AAN, APA, CNS), you may need to first log-in to your professional society’s website to allow the full article to appear.
Note for AACAP members: If you are an AACAP member, log in to your AACAP member account to access the Pilot Project articles available with your membership at www.aacap.org/pilotproject. If you need assistance, please contact CME@aacap.org. For questions about JAACAP or your member subscription, contact email@example.com.
Note for AAN members: As of 2021, all articles selected from the journal Continuum: Lifelong Learning in Neurology are free to AAN members.
Note for APA members and ABPN diplomates: APA offers Category 1 CME credit for their Pilot Project articles. The articles are complimentary to all diplomates via an ABPN educational grant. Participants need to access the articles through an APA account. If you need assistance, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are three categories of cost for Pilot Project/ABCC journal articles:
