The croupier's view

Bronwyn Gaut
Med J Aust 2002; 177 (11): 582.
Published online: 2 December 2002

The MJA now comes to you from downtown Pyrmont, next to Sydney's Darling Harbour and a short roll of the dice from the Sydney Casino. Not only are the premises more fitting for Australia's premier general medical journal, the casino advantage has helped MJA staff to deal the best possible hand to our readers.

In the 12 months from 1 July 2001 to 30 June 2002, the MJA received 846 manuscripts and 386 letters. The stakes were high for research manuscripts, with an acceptance rate of 23%. A decision to accept a research manuscript took an average of 169 days (this includes peer review, revision and several reviews by the Editorial Committee); a decision to reject took an average of 36 days. Other categories of submissions were less of a gamble, with an overall acceptance rate of 70%, but this includes commissioned articles.

We had two special issues this year: the very popular "Updates in Medicine" as the first issue of the year, and our regular General Practice issue to coincide with Family Doctor Week in July. MJA Practice Essentials has continued with a new series on Infectious Diseases. We have also published many supplements: on early childhood asthma, depression, osteoporosis, chronic fatigue syndrome, the role of fats, and the student and junior doctor in distress.

Publishing quality research is not a matter of Russian roulette, or luck of the draw and, as always, we extend enormous gratitude to our reviewers, listed below. They do a tremendous job and the Journal depends on their enthusiasm and dedication. This year we welcome 10 new members to our Content Review Committee; they meet by teleconference every month to assist with difficult decisions about manuscripts and to contribute ideas for the future direction of the Journal.

A very merry festive season to you all.
