Instructions to Contributors

Article & Commentary Submissions:

Articles for publication are welcomed by the editors. Ethics & Medicine is peer-reviewed. Material submitted may be returned for revisions. Articles should be submitted in electronic format. Authors should supply a removable cover sheet with the title of the article and the author’s name. No other personal attribution should appear at the head of each article. Contributors will be notified as soon as possible of editorial decision, though the process can take some time. Contributors are asked to follow the pattern of published material for length, subheading, and so forth. Ethics & Medicine uses The Chicago Manual of Style (CMOS), 17th edition, as a standard guide. Full Notes style (in endnote formatting) is preferred, but Ethics & Medicine will accept submissions utilizing CMOS Author-Date-Page style with full bibliography from fields where this style is the norm. All submissions should be submitted in .DOC or .DOCX file formats and follow one of the noted CMOS styles. Authors should also consult the Author Guidelines for Submissions to Ethics & Medicine prior to submission for additional clarifications regarding the style and format expectations of manuscripts.

An outline CV along with a brief abstract and keywords (listing no more than 10) should accompany each contribution.
