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:
