The purpose of the ATS website is to promote the ATS mission through communication and education. The ATS website integrates most of the ATS activity and governance. It links our members to allow them to carry out their professional activities better and keep them abreast of scientific, clinical, and practice advances. It serves to recruit individuals into our Society and into our fields that include Pulmonary, Critical Care, Sleep, and Environmental and Occupational medicine and science.
The website's goal is also to inform the medical and lay communities and guide them in the best practice of respiratory and critical care medicine and research. The website is a source of information and advocacy for relevant political and health care policy. It gives instruction and guidance to medically underserved parts of the world. Finally, it is a source of revenue for the ATS to carry out its mission.
Submitting Material and Review
Anyone may submit material for publication on the ATS website. The published work may arise from ATS assemblies or committees, individual members, or outside sources, such as nonmembers or government agencies. The Editor may invite submissions and coordinate items suggested by the Editorial Board, ATS leadership, or an ATS unit.
Material submitted electronically to the editor goes through a review process that usually includes "user" as well as expert reviewers. Official ATS statements have a separate ATS statement review process and are posted after this review. Assembly page material generally goes through the Assembly Web Director. This material is overseen by the Assembly Web Director's Review Committee. Material for the columns is submitted to the Column Editors and reviewed by their review committees.
Please refer to the ATS Website Instructions for Contributors for more information on the submission process and requirements.
Updating, Archiving and Removal
If readers find material that is no longer current, please inform us at email@example.com.
