The American Medical Student Association (AMSA) and Taylor & Francis have announced a partnership to inform and inspire tomorrow's physicians and support the Association's equitable healthcare vision.
Experts at the leading research publisher will provide AMSA members with a range of training opportunities on key professional development topics, including publishing ethics and peer review. Special ‘lunch & learn' webinar sessions offer guidance on getting published and update members on policy developments. In addition, AMSA members can now purchase Taylor & Francis, CRC Press and Routledge books at a substantial discount.
AMSA has also become the first affiliate partner of the Journal of Health Equity, a new open access journal dedicated to publishing innovative research on the complex causes of health inequity and evaluations of efforts to promote health equity. Edited by Andreas Xyrichis of King's College London, UK, the Journal of Health Equity also aims to foster dialogue between researchers of different disciplines on how to put healthcare improvements into practice, through case studies, policy analyses, and discussion pieces.
Rohini Kousalya Siva, President of the American Medical Student Association, said:
"Our partnership with Taylor & Francis and the Journal of Health Equity aligns seamlessly with our mission. This collaboration is a pivotal step in our advocacy to combat racism, prioritize diversity, equity, and inclusion, and address healthcare disparities, as we work together to create a more equitable healthcare system and outcomes for all. Through this strategic alliance, we leverage the power of research and literature to actively contribute towards dismantling systemic barriers, propelling us towards a future where health equity is a reality."
Liz Knowles, Global Portfolio Director for Medicine & Health Journals at Taylor & Francis, added:
"We believe ensuring everyone can access healthcare is key to human progress, so we are delighted our partnership can support the AMSA's vital activities in this area. We're really looking forward to working with AMSA members, sharing the latest knowledge and equipping them with skills to publish their own work. The Journal of Health Equity provides an exciting new venue for innovative research on health equity and we are grateful to the AMSA for their support of its launch".
Taylor & Francis has a growing portfolio of over 370 Medical journals and this week announced the addition of biomedical publisher Future Science Group.
