EMS World Magazine/EMSWorld.com Author Guidelines

Article Jul 09, 2014

Articles are accepted for publication on condition that they are contributed solely to EMS World Magazine and/or EMSWorld.com. Authors should secure all necessary clearances and approvals prior to submission. Receipt of all manuscripts will be acknowledged immediately, and every effort will be made to notify contributors of the status of their submission within 60 days. Manuscripts should be from 1,500 to 3,000 words; however, the most important element is content, not length.

Photographs and illustrations (including a photograph of each author) add greatly to the value of the articles. We encourage authors to include them. If a final piece of artwork is not available, please include a rough sketch of what is needed; our art director will then contact you. Digital photographs must be submitted as either tif or jpeg files, saved at 300 dpi if possible. Number references in order of their appearance in the text. For journal articles, include author, title, journal, volume, page numbers and year. For books, include author, chapter title, book title, editor, page numbers, place of publication and date.

E-mail manuscripts to editor@emsworld.com. Each author’s full name and affiliation must be noted on the first page in precisely the form the author desires the information to be published. One author should be designated as correspondent, with contact address, telephone number and e-mail.

We reserve the right to edit all papers for clarity or length, as well as punctuation, spelling, grammar, syntax and other word usage.

These guidelines are provided for the convenience of the author; however, individuals desiring to contribute papers should not hesitate to make inquiries even if they are unfamiliar with procedures for writing and submitting manuscripts. The editorial staff will be pleased to assist in any way. Our goal is to provide relevant, high-quality information; to write and publish with absolute integrity; and to serve as effectively as possible the needs of the individuals involved in emergency medical services. If you have information, articles or manuscripts that would help us to achieve these goals, we would like to hear from you. E-mail editor@emsworld.com, or call 800/547-7377, ext. 1110.
