and the Publisher at email@example.com If submitting by email, please put “CE for

The article needs to be
provided by a single or pair of authors.
Articles must be
absolutely non-advertorial. Promotion
of the author’s business or branded product within the article requires that we
reject it. There can be a generic discussion of a product and if it is, for
instance, new to the market we can, at our discretion, allow a single brand
reference without superlatives; subsequent references need to be generic
Articles need to be
narratives expressing the author’s expertise and without dialogue or quotes.
Please keep them between 750 and 1000 words with a 60-75 word boilerplate at
the end of the copy mentioning items such as the author’s name, position,
business, relevant expertise and email contact and website, but no phone
numbers. Please remember that Medical
News is a B2B publication for the healthcare community. Articles directed to
healthcare consumers do not represent our target market.
The submission needs to include two attached files: A Word document
with the boilerplate at the end of the copy and a high resolution (250 dpi or
better) headshot of the author/s.
Articles are subject to
editing for style and are not returned for proofing by the author except at our
discretion for clarification.
Please format the heading of
the copy as follows:
Name of publication
Year and month
Please feel free to contact
the editor with any questions you have at any stage of the process. We are glad
to answer questions and very much appreciate your contributions. Articles are

for use at a later time so resubmission is not necessary.
Thank you so much,
