Announcing a new subgroup for journal editors

We are launching a new subgroup for health and medical journal editors in Australia and New Zealand. This group aims to provide a community for networking opportunities, professional development and a forum to consider issues facing biomedical journals, particularly in the Australasian region.

Who can join?

Editors of health or medical journals (past, present and future)

People working with or at these journals such as editorial assistants, production managers, publishers.

Only members of AMWA may join this subgroup.

If you are interested in joining or volunteering to be on the committee please email Fiona Mackinnon –


AHMEN is holding an event in Sydney on June 6, 2016 at the NPSMedicinewise offices in Surry Hills.

We are still working on the program but a draft of the sessions is given below:

AMWA 2020 – Medical Writing and Communication During the COVID-19 Crisis

For those who attended the AMWA 2020 Special Virtual Event: 'Medical Writing and Communication During the COVID-19 Crisis' on Thursday 19 November, we are sure you would agree that it was an invaluable two hours. The calibre of speakers and their learnings from this unprecedented crisis were beyond our expectations. We are humbled by their willingness to give their personal time to share their experience with us. 

If you missed the live event, a recording is available to AMWA members in the Members Area. If you are not yet an AMWA member, but would like to join, you can visit our membership and benefits page here. Annual membership is $80 for full members and $40 for students.
