GAPP Retires After 6 Years

Monday, May 14, 2018  

The Global Alliance of Publication Professionals (GAPP) was created in 2012 as a rapid-response mechanism to counter misinformed or outdated articles about our profession. After 6 years and 50 responses, GAPP announced their retirement on May 2, 2018. 

In a recent statement, Jackie Marchington, PhD, on behalf of the entire GAPP team, said, "We feel that GAPP has served its purpose and the professional organizations have evolved to a point that we can hand back responsibility for rebuttals and responses to the respective governing bodies [AMWA, EMWA, and ISMPP]. The cooperation between you has been evidenced by the joint response to the BMJ Matheson article in September 2016 and by the development and publication of the Joint Position Statement on the Role of Medical Writers."

AMWA leadership applauds the work of the GAPP team and offers our sincerest thanks for their diligent work to promote the profession.
