A Marriage between WSES and AME Publishing Company in academic cooperation

The World Society Of Emergency Surgery has entered into a strategic cooperation agreement with AME Publishing Company, based on the in-depth communication and understanding of both sides.

Founded in 2009, AME Publishing Company has offices in Hong Kong, Guangzhou, Changsha, Nanjing, Chengdu, Shanghai, Beijing, Taibei, Sydney and San Francisco. AME is an acronym for “Academic Made Easy/Excellent/Enthusiastic.” It goes with a Chinese translation “Yuqiongqianlimu, Kuailegaoxueshu “, which means conducting academic researches with fun and joy.
Up to now, AME has published 30 journals, with 2 journals (Journal of Thoracic Disease and Translational Cancer Research) indexed by Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE) and 17 journals (e.g. Annals of Translational Medicine) indexed by PubMed. AME has also published 10 books in English, 15 books in Chinese and 60 e-books, categorized into four series – Medical Monograph, Medical Review (Key opinion of medical experts), Book of Excellence worldwide and Interview with experts. In addition, AME has held more than 100 conferences in a variety of forms.

This cooperation could be regarded as a combination of the resource advantage of AME and WSES, which has been publishing guidelines since almost ten years, leading some of the main emergency and trauma surgery fields. The idea of cooperation is to republish some recent and up to date guidelines and position papers regarding intraabdominal infections, cholecystitis, diverticulitis, appendicitis, intestinal occlusion, liver trauma, gastrointestinal bleeding, vascular injuries, and other emergency and trauma surgery topics in the Chinese journal and media platform of AME Publishing Company.

This cooperation between AME and WSES will not only advance the academic promotion of emergency surgery and trauma surgery, but will benefit more physicians and patients in China.
