The Journal has a new Editor and big plans for the future
With this issue, Dr Martin Van Der Weyden retires after 16 years as Editor of the Journal. A tribute to Martin and his many achievements will appear in the next issue. Martin has been a generous and wise teacher, and his columns have set the benchmark in editorial writing. Under his guidance, the Medical Journal of Australia has become the leading publisher of general medical research in Australia. It makes a vital contribution to the debate on local and global medical issues including Indigenous health, patient safety, the honesty and integrity of scientific publishing and peer review, and Australian health policy. The Journal he bequeaths is robust and central to medical communication in this country.
