Policies for Medical Journal Editors, prepared by the WAME Ethics and Policy Committee (formerly the Publication Ethics and Editorial Policy Committees)  

WAME encourages those who are qualified and interested to translate WAME policy into languages other than English (the language of record for WAME policies to date), and as a service to members will post links and/or copies of such translations on the WAME Website if requested. However, WAME does not have the resources to assure the accuracy of such translations.
