This article addresses the right of the "Canadian Medical Association Journal" (CMAJ) towards editorial freedom and governance structure. In response to the objection of a Canadian Medical Association executive about an article CMAJ is preparing on behind-the-counter access to emergency levonorgestrel, the journal established an oversight committee to assist in maintaining harmonious relations between CMAJ and the Canadian Medical Association.
