Publications Committee

The Publications Committee will set the policies, tone and strategy for publishing with the ultimate goal to make the AAN THE resource for neurological information. Members should be up-to-date on what all publications are doing, and the Committee will be a forum for discussing what is and is not working, where there are gaps, and what the opportunities are for new products or innovations. The Committee will vet all proposals concerning publications so that when a proposal goes to the Board of Directors for consideration, Board members can be confident the Publications Committee supports the proposal. Additionally, the Committee will ensure that our publications work synergistically to meet the varying breadth and depth of needs of the neurology community. While individual publications may develop ideas for new products, final decisions will occur after discussion within the Committee.
