Editorial Committee Mission

The IAEM Editorial Committee assists the IAEM Bulletin Editor in identifying articles and special focus issues. At the beginning of 2020, the IAEM Bulletin began its 37th year of publication as the official IAEM monthly newsletter. Members of the committee 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 committee sends its recommended topics to the Board each year for review/approval. The special focus topics will be posted soon 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. Prospective members and other visitors to the IAEM website are invited to view and/or download sample issues at the top of the IAEM Bulletin home page.
