Who we are: We are a group of doctors who are deeply concerned about the short- and long-term welfare of Australia’s oldest and most respected medical journal, the Medical Journal of Australia (MJA). The membership of our Interim Steering Committee (with brief bios) can be found here.
Our aims: Our primary aim is to ensure that as many doctors as possible are fully aware of the facts surrounding the current “crisis” – as at early May 2015 – at the MJA. On this website you will find every publicly available document (both pro and con) that seeks to explain the crisis and how and why it has arisen. If and when more information becomes available, it will be added to our website.
Our secondary aim is to allow supporters/ readers/ contributors and reviewers for the MJA to indicate their views as to how the crisis should best be resolved. On this site you can register (at no cost) as a “friend of the MJA”. You can also indicate whether you agree or disagree with the views of the steering committee and add comments.
