    The Publication Plan


    The MedComms Workbook is an email-based service that simply helps MedComms freelancers and clients find each other within the specialist medical communications, education and publishing communities.

    Freelancers - email Peter Llewellyn with just brief details of your services and experience and I'll sign you up to the email list. You will only receive messages which specifically tell you if someone is looking for a freelance service. It's up to you whether you respond. You can, of course, unsubscribe at any time.

    This service is entirely free of charge to freelancers.

    Clients - email Peter Llewellyn and I'll arrange to email the list of registered freelancers with your message. This is sent as a generic message to MedComms freelancers who have asked to be alerted. You need to be as detailed as you can be in your message and in particular be clear about whether you need someone to work on-site, and if so where. Freelancers will then contact you directly if they are able to help.

    This service is entirely free of charge to clients.

    List profile - there are now more than 350 freelancers registered. Many are specialist medical writers, and there are also editors, proof-readers, account managers, project managers, publication planners, strategic consultants, event organisers and designers. Note that this service began as an extension of the UK-based MedComms Networking Community and many of the freelancers are currently based in the UK. However the list is open to anyone, anywhere in the world, and clearly very often - though not always - geography doesn't matter now.

    Results of feedback survey, August 2013 - the 246 freelancers on the list in August 2013 were asked their views about the value and effectiveness of the service. The data presented here are just some of the pooled results which will hopefully help all parties, freelancers and clients, to better understand the profile of the current service


    Dear Peter

    "As ever, the Network trumps again! Having asked you to place a note on the MedComms Workbook for a seemingly 'impossible brief', I have received emails from excellent candidates who would all be up for the job and available within the tight timelines. This service is fantastic and well worth continuing. Thanks again for your continued efforts."

    May 2013, Melanie Martin, Director, A-Z Medical Writing

    Later this year we will be running our annual Publications Seminars, supported once again by Adis Journals.

    We would like your help as we finalise which topics are to be covered, and to inform the discussions we have on the day.

    Whether or not you plan to attend, please complete the following short questionnaire and please pass it on to others who may be interested. This way we aim to maximise the learning opportunity for everybody.
