At the 2015 UEMS Surgery Section-Hellenic Surgical Society Joint Symposium in Athens the importance of journals and the national societies was highlighted. It was concluded that editors of national journals could learn a lot from each other and cooperate. Dr Tom Glomsaker created a working group on the cooperation between national journals of surgery shortly afterwards, launched a survey and gathered the responses, etc. and a lot of progress has since been made. There is, however, still room for improvement and further development, and the UEMS Surgery Section is encouraged to use the network established effectively.
