Abstract

We, the participants in the Joint Meeting of the Asia Pacific Association of Medical Journal Editors (APAME), the Index Medicus for the South-East Asian Region (IMSEAR), and the Western Pacific Region Index Medicus (WPRIM) held in Tokyo from 2 to 4 August 2013:

 

CONSIDERING

That overwhelming data in science and medicine may differ in their reliability and that quality control is important for compiling scientific and health information;

That equitable circulation of scientific and health information is facilitated by fair collaboration among policy makers, researchers, and industry sectors including pharmaceuticals and publishers;

That APAME, IMSEAR, and WPRIM are important collaborative initiatives that can implement global guidelines for publication and dissemination of scientific and medical knowledge in an equitable and ethical manner;

 

CONFIRM

Our commitment to endorse that scientific and medical knowledge is imperishable and should not be assessed or evaluated by only economic or temporal considerations;

Our commitment to improve quality and reliability of scientific and medical knowledge through the IMSEAR and WPRIM;

Our commitment to publish reliable and high-quality information by education of researchers, implementation of fair review processes, and organization of networks through APAME;

Our commitment to collaborate with publishers, academic or public libraries, and research bodies to achieve equitable and ethical publication and dissemination of scientific and medical knowledge;

 

COMMIT

Ourselves, to publishing reliable and high-quality information, thereby setting the ethical standard for our colleagues, editors, and librarians in the Region;

Our publishers, to disseminating scientific and medical knowledge fairly and impartially through digital library services including, but not limited to, IMSEAR, WPRIM, and the Global Health Library;

Our organization, APAME, to building further networks, convening conferences, and organizing events to educate and empower editors, peer reviewers, and authors to achieve internationally acceptable, but regionally realistic, scholarly standards.
