Australasian Epidemiologist - Three editions are produced annually. The Association produces the journal to provide members with an opportunity to have their work published locally, with or without peer-review, and to keep members up to date with events and issues of interest to epidemiologists in Australia and New Zealand. This journal contains research papers, discussion papers and reviews, news from the AEA Council and a students’ section. A hard copy is posted to all members and issues back to 2005 are available in the members section of the website.
Email Bulletin - A fortnightly email bulletin is distributed to all members and provides notices of official AEA business and information on relevant employment opportunities, training courses, workshops and conferences. It is used as a method of contacting members to request their involvement in a variety of activities, and recently included a membership survey.
AEA Annual Scientific Meeting –The annual AEA scientific meeting provides a forum for workshops and presentation of papers and posters related to epidemiology and biostatistics. Members receive discounted registration fees at the annual scientific meeting.
Chapters and Special Interest Groups (SIGs) –The AEA encourages and supports the establishment of local epidemiology interest groups to undertake ongoing education and training courses. These local chapters or SIGs organise social events, talks and conferences and have been established in several areas (i.e. Victoria/Tasmania and Queensland) and on specific topics (i.e. paediatric and perinatal epidemiology).
Student Membership (applicable for undergraduate and postgraduate students).
The AEA encourages student participation. It organises student workshops at the annual scientific meeting and offers travel bursaries for conference attendance, and prizes for oral and poster presentations.
