Tasman Journals arose from an apparent need for additional medical and scientific journals in Australia and New Zealand, for both established researchers and those in training. There are currently only three established medical journals in Australia and New Zealand, excluding student journals, and demand surely exceeds supply of publishing slots. Though we are focused on Australasia, we will welcome contributions from countries and institutions beyond these shores.
Tasman Journals will provide open-access web-based journal publications. All published content is provided in PDF and HTML format. HTML articles are formatted to be compatible with Google Scholar meta-data indexing standards.
Tasman Journals has been created by Adj. Clin. Prof. Alasdair Millar PhD FRACP FRCP, who was educated at the University of Glasgow and has held clinical and research positions at the University of Glasgow, Monash University, the University of Otago, the University of Western Australia and (currently) Curtin University Medical School. He is registered as a consultant physician and clinical pharmacologist in both Australia and New Zealand and has worked at teaching and regional hospitals (in order) in Glasgow, Melbourne, Dunedin, Perth, Invercargill and Albany (and short-term appointments at other centres).
