 For starters I would refer your questioner to the following three
websites, which have a host of useful information for someone thinking
about starting up a journal:

World Association of Medical Editors
http://www.wame.org

Council of Science Editors
http://www.councilscienceeditors.org/

International Committee of Medical Journal Editors
http://www.icmje.org/

Subject: Guidelines for Establishing a Medical Journal

Hi Folks

  I have a query from a faculty member and I am requesting any advice
that I can get. The faculty wants to publish a medical journal and  the
individual wants to know the following:

  1.  Guidelines for establishing a medical journal.

  2.  Composition of Editorial Board

  3.  Composition of Advisory Board etc.


  Thanks.
