Medical Writing Writing Matters Out On Our Own

Volume 21, Issue 3 - Writing Matters

Out On Our Own


Another summer has come and gone. In this issue of OOOO, we are happy to feature Paul Woolley's novel approach of comparing employment and freelancing. I am sure many of us can identify with some of the points he raises.

We thank Debbie Jordan for sharing with us her Out of Hours hairy adventure for a worthy cause, plus a useful addition to a medical writer's Tool Box – a website offering a quick way of locating instructions for authors’ for over 6000 journals in the field of health and life sciences.

And once again, Anu and Anders bring us an entertaining word jumble. Finally, a quick reminder that you should join the EMWA group on LinkedIn if you haven't already done so. This is our means of keeping in touch and updating you on important issues in ‘real time’. Our next stop is Berlin at the November 2012 EMWA meeting this autumn. We hope to see old and new members alike at the Freelance Business Forum.
