Dear colleagues,


after six years of fruitful collaboration, editors Eileen Moyer and
Vinh-Kim Nguyen are stepping down so that the open-access journal can
flourish in the creative hands of an editorial collective based at the
University of Edinburgh. Much thought has been put into the transition, and
the journal’s founding values of accessibility, internationalism, generous
collegiality, interdisciplinarity, and quality will remain at the core of
the project.



The Edinburgh *MAT* Collective is based in the Edinburgh Centre for Medical
Anthropology (EdCMA), a vibrant and growing centre for research and
teaching in medical anthropology that is interdisciplinary in approach, yet
firmly grounded in social anthropology. The success of EdCMA lies in its
collaborative and creative ethos, and the *MAT* Collective’s horizontal
governance structure stands against unethical and exploitative research and
publishing practices. The Collective aims to expand on the editors’
original global vision with a commitment to fostering conversations among
researchers employed at institutions in the global south, where much
medical anthropology and global health research has traditionally been
carried out. Along with the establishment of a new international advisory
board, this will ensure that the journal remains at the cutting edge of
theory and practice in the field. While maintaining the commitment to
open-access publishing, *MAT* will transform into a fully indexed journal
in 2020.



*MAT* began as a reincarnation of the Dutch journal *Medische Antropologie*,
which was housed at the University of Amsterdam under the direction of
Sjaak van der Geest for twenty-eight years. Moyer and Nguyen wanted to
transform *Medische Antropologie* into an international journal that would
be widely read and easily accessible to the broader global public engaged
in addressing issues at the intersection of health, culture, and society.
Accessibility is not only about open access: the founding editors were
committed to ‘deprovincializing’ medical anthropology, supporting
scholarship of interest beyond elite universities, and moving the field
beyond the at-times hermetic language that had come to haunt academic
writing in our field. And *MAT* has always been a collective effort, its
intellectual community forged through day-to-day interactions in the
academic centres that have hosted it – the Graduate Institute in Geneva and
the University of Amsterdam – as well as virtual collaborations among our
globally dispersed editorial team and our jargon-allergic managing editor,
Erin Martineau. The founding editors are delighted that *MAT*’s new home is
host to one of the most vibrant intellectual communities in medical
anthropology today and one with a renewed commitment to engaging global
scholarship.



*Call for submissions*

The migration to Edinburgh is already underway, and the editorial teams do
not anticipate any delays in the processing, review, or publication of
articles. We therefore encourage submissions to continue during this
exciting period of transition. We welcome submissions to any of the
journal’s existing sections, including full academic articles, and shorter
think pieces, interventions, photo essays, reviews, and reflections on
writing. See http://medanthrotheory.org/pages/submissions/ for full details.



*MAT** Collective members*

The *MAT* editorial collective at Edinburgh consists of Lucy Lowe, Alice
Street, Ian Harper, Lotte Segal, Chisomo Kalinga, Ayaz Qureshi, Rebecca
Marsland, Jessica Cooper, Lukas Engelmann, and Kaveri Qureshi.
