PubMed Central Canada to be taken offline in February 2018

On February 23, 2018, PubMed Central Canada (PMC Canada) will be taken offline permanently. No author manuscripts will be deleted, and the approximately 2,900 manuscripts authored by Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR)-funded researchers currently in the archive will be copied to the National Research Council’s (NRC) Digital Repository over the coming months. These manuscripts along with all other content will also remain publicly searchable on PubMed Central (US) and Europe PubMed Central, meaning such manuscripts will continue to be compliant with the Tri-Agency Open Access Policy on Publications.

1.  The effect of depression on the association between military service and life satisfaction 
The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of depression on the association between a history of military service and life satisfaction among a nationally representative sample of US males.
Data from 57,905 men were obtained from the 2006 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance (BRFSS) survey that assessed depression, history of military service, and life satisfaction. Multivariable logistic regression was conducted, controlling for demographics and physical health characteristics.
In non-depressed men, a history of military service was associated with higher odds of life satisfaction, OR (95%CI) = 1.39 (1.07, 1.81). However, the interaction between depression and a history of military service was significant, OR (95%CI) = 0.56 (0.38–0.84), such that a history of military service was associated with equivalent odds of satisfaction in depressed men, OR (95%CI) = 0.78 (0.56–1.09).
Intervention efforts targeting depression in men with a history of military service may have a significant impact on their well being. Future research should replicate these findings, examine potential mechanisms of the effects, and study the utility of life satisfaction measures in this population.
