BAUS, SLAUS and JCU Collaboration

In November 2013 a joint academic meeting of British Association of Urological Surgeons (BAUS) and Sri Lankan Association of Urological Surgeons (SLAUS) was held in Colombo, Sri Lanka. It was attended by almost all Sri Lankan Urologists and a well represented delegation from BAUS including its President Elect Mr Mark Speakman. An important issue, among many others discussed at the meeting was how to forge a lasting and mutually beneficial relationship between BAUS and SLAUS. Mr Ian Pierce, Editor, Journal of Clinical Urology (JCU) suggested to invite a SLAUS member to join the JCU editorial board and to give JCU subscription to SLAUS members on a concessionary rate.

SLAUS in turn agreed to adopt the JCU as its International Journal. Subsequently all these proposals were discussed at their respective associations and were accepted overwhelmingly and unanimously by the members of the two associations.

Thereafter Ms Charlotte Jardine, Publishing Editor, Medicine and Life Sciences of Sage Publications arranged an exceptionally generous subscription for SLAUS members which will make other organisations envious of SLAUS! Furthermore the BAUS decided to pay the subscription of the first year (2014) as a gesture of good will!! SLAUS executive committee as well as its members are thrilled about these developments and are immensely grateful to entire BAUS membership especially Mr Mark Speakman, Mr Ian Pearce and Charlotte Jardine.

These developments augur well for a long lasting friendship between the two organistaions which are based in two countries which had historical and close relationships which run for over two centuries.
