In response to the views of the membership and as a result of a management reappraisal of the financial situation of the AMA specialty journals, the Board of Trustees voted to continue the specialty journals as a benefit of membership. The Board will report on the change to the House of Delegates in June. Nine of the ten journals were scheduled to be distributed on a subscription basis beginning in July. The tenth journal, Archives of Environmental Health, was put on a subscription basis several months ago. The Board action would return all the specialty journals to a benefit-of-membership status. Members also will receive Prism, the AMA's new socioeconomic journal.
