New home for IMS Bulletin news

Bulletin news now on IMS site

Regular readers of the IMS Bulletin probably know that, as well as reading the news items and articles that we publish in print, you can also access them online via the Bulletin’s website. Each issue is available as a PDF to download, and we also post news, columns and articles online. (Jobs and meetings are listed on the main IMS website). Since 2011, the Bulletin website has been located here.

Given the fact that increasing numbers of people are browsing the internet on smartphones and tablets, and this old Bulletin website is best viewed on a desktop computer, we have now moved all the articles, as well as the Bulletin PDF archives, over to the main IMS site, where you can find them under the News tab at the top of each page:

If you’re looking for an older story, search the archives at

Of course, you can also find news on our social media channels: on Facebook ( and Twitter (

We love to hear from you, so if you have any news to share—your own or someone else’s—or you have an idea for an article, please get in touch to discuss this. We also want to hear the sad news of the passing of members of our community, so again, please get in touch if you hear that a member or fellow has passed away. Email your news to Tati Howell:

Welcome to the IMS Bulletin website! We are developing the way we communicate news and information more effectively with members. The print Bulletin is still with us (free with IMS membership), and still available as a PDF to download, but in addition, we are placing some of the news, columns and articles on this blog site, which will allow you the opportunity to interact more. We are always keen to hear from IMS members, and encourage you to write articles and reports that other IMS members would find interesting. Contact the IMS Bulletin at
