The MAP Working Group is excited to introduce “What Would You Do?” an engaging and interactive poll now available in The MAP newsletter. All readers are welcome to participate!

“What Would You Do?” presents case scenarios as an educational opportunity for medical publication professionals. Readers can review and assess each case scenario and then participate in a poll by selecting one of the What Would You Do? solutions. Readers can also have the option of providing comments (anonymously, if they prefer) on the case scenario. Poll results, along with educational insights, will be shared in a later release of The MAP.

“The MAP Working Group developed this interactive, case scenario-based poll to offer ISMPP members an opportunity to consider a day-to-day medical publications situation and gain insights about best practices from peers. We hope members find the case scenarios and poll results to be informative.” ― Eric Wong, Chair of The MAP Working Group

The MAP Working Group: Articles Planning and Strategizing

The MAP Working Group is responsible for planning articles that will appear in the “News and Trends” section, which focuses on current trends and the latest news in medical publications and scientific communications. The MAP Working Group also strategizes on potential enhancements to the newsletter, the latest of which is the new “What Would You Do?” poll.

Article ideas for News and Trends can be proposed by anyone who is interested in medical publications and scientific communications. The Working Group vets all proposed article topics for the News and Trends section.

The MAP Working Group may help identify and enlist subject matter experts as authors for article topics. At times, authors propose their own topics, which is encouraged by the Working Group. Occasionally, Working Group members may volunteer to author topics that are of interest to them.

If you would like to propose an article idea or express interest in serving as an author, contact Anna Geraci, ISMPP Director of Communications, at
