Editorial Committee Mission

The IAEM-Global Editorial Sub-Work Group assists the IAEM Bulletin Editor in identifying articles and special focus issues. At the end of 2019, the IAEM Bulletin will complete its 36th year of publication as the official IAEM monthly newsletter. Members of the work group recruit subject matter experts to author articles and function as liaisons to the Board of Directors on communications issues. The work group created and maintains the online searchable collection of EM Practitioner Articles.

Current Activities

  • Special Focus Issue Topics. The Editorial Work Group's recommendations to the Global Board for the 2015 special focus topics were approved and are posted on the IAEM Bulletin home page.
  • The IAEM Bulletin. In 2014, the IAEM Bulletin became a monthly online publication available to members only in the IAEM Bulletin Archives. Longer feature articles are now accepted, up to 1,500 words. The Author's Guidelines are available here.
