Inside the MJA

Since its beginning in 1914, the MJA has been the most trusted source of news on developments and research in clinical practice and health policy. In each issue of the MJA you’ll find the latest information on Australian clinical research and trials, evidence-based reviews, clinical practice updates, and authoritative medical opinion and debate. The MJA actively encourages comment and debate from its readers.


As the official publication of the Australian Medical Association, the MJA has 22 issues per year (twice a month with double issues in January and December) and is read by an ever growing audience of medical practitioners across healthcare and medical education. The journal is published in both print and online editions.
The MJA now also produces a free weekly online newsletter, MJA InSight, which contains expert news and analysis on the issues, research and developments making headlines in medicine.
