Welcome to the South Pacific Underwater Medicine Society (SPUMS).

Renew your membership here.

IMPORTANT: Submissions will only be accepted electronically. Authors, we ask that you visit Manuscript Manager (our online submission platform). Please download a copy of our Instructions to Authors and other important documents required for submitting - which you can find in the Submitting to DHM part of this website.

As of the current March 2018 issue, DHM is now published electronically. Only members of SPUMS or EUBS can access the most recent issues. While the move will reduce the costs of publication in the longer run (with benefits for all members), in the short term both SPUMS and EUBS faced significant setting-up costs for the transition to e-publication, shared equally between the two Societies. The eJournal will be of a high standard and we hope will not only maintain but enhance the academic standing of DHM.


Older issues can be accessed free of charge at the Rubicon Foundation website
