JEM includes research papers and clinical studies as well as articles focusing on the training of emergency physicians and on the practice of emergency medicine. As AAEM's official journal, an online subscription to JEM is included in the membership dues of each member*. AAEM actively encourages its membership to contribute editorial material for publication in JEM.

    *If you prefer to receive JEM in both paper and electronic format, please contact us at info@aaem.org.

Activities that support the personal and professional welfare of the individual specialist are of primary concern to AAEM.
