AIMS AND ACTIVITIES
- The EMEUNET Newsletter ‘EMEUNEWS’ is aimed at spreading any information considered useful to young rheumatologists and researchers in the EMEUNET community. Together with EMEUNET´s Social Media channels, EMEUNEWS can be considered to be the “voice” of EMEUNET.
- EMEUNEWS is released monthly and covers several topics. The Newsletters promote EMEUNET’s visibility, by introducing working group members (September issue) and country liaisons (March issue) as well as by showing the different activities of the Subgroups (February issue) and the activities of EMEUNET over the previous year in the One Year in Review issue (May). Some of the most popular issues each year are the Do not Miss abstracts (May and October issues) and abstract Highlights (July and November issues) from the EULAR and ACR annual meetings. All EMEUNEWS issues also include general information about EMEUNET, upcoming events, abstract deadlines, fellowships, courses, grants, etc. Finally, we have recently introduced an issue dedicated to the activities of Young Specialists Organisations.
- The EULAR-EMEUNET Press Review and Journal Club issue is released quarterly, and is a key recent addition to the EMEUNEWS stable. These issues highlight key recent articles from the rheumatology literature. An article is selected for a Twitter-based journal club in conjunction with the EULAR School of Rheumatology. A popular vote is also held to select the EMEUNET Paper of the Month.
