MJA Editor-in-Chief preparing to hand over reins before end of year

Laureate Professor Nick Talley, who steered the MJA to the top ranks of medical journals globally, is looking for a successor as Editor-in-Chief.

Editor-in-Chief of the Medical Journal of Australia (MJA), Laureate Professor Nick Talley, has announced that he will be moving on from the position of Editor-in-Chief before the end of the year.

Under Professor Talley’s leadership the MJA has become the leading choice for medical researchers and publishers to share important research with peers across the globe.

Since Professor Talley stepped into the role in 2015 the MJA has continued to see its impact factor rise the past five years, becoming one of the top 17 medical journals globally.

Professor Talley was last year awarded the AMA's highest award, the Gold Medal, in recognition of his services to medicine, including the MJA.

AMA President Dr Khorshid honoured Professor Talley on being awarded the Gold Medal. “As a result of Professor Talley’s leadership and drive, the latest vital information about the novel and emerging COVID-19 pandemic was presented in a scientifically rigorous way to inform clinicians so we could take up the fight on the frontline armed with the latest insights,” Dr Khorshid said.
