Title: The history and development of the South Pacific Underwater Medicine Society Journal.
Author: Knight, J
Abstract: Introduction: This paper presents the history of the South Pacific Underwater Medicine Society Journal from 1971 to 2001, covering not so much the content of the publication as the processes by which the Journals have been produced and the behind-the-scenes work of those involved in the production of the 31 volumes published so far. A great deal of work is involved in transforming papers written by doctors from their original form to a final format, understandable by non-medical associate members. This is then printed in the Journal and posted to members around the world. The major reason for presenting this paper is to find someone to replace me as Editor at the 2002 Annual General Meeting (AGM) when I will not be available for appointment. For the past six years SPUMS has paid the Editor a honorarium and in return has required the Editor’s attendance at the Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM). The Editor negotiates annually with Committee the amount of the honorarium.
