Author Guidelines

Features range between 2,000 and 3,000 words (with any references being in addition to the preceding word count for the main text). We generally run four to six color clinical photos with features.

Columns range between 1,100 and 1,500 words (with any references being in addition to the preceding word count for the main text). We generally run two or three color clinical photos with columns.

References should be listed in the order in which they are referred to in the text.

An example of a journal reference would be as follows:

Lavery L, Armstrong D, Harkless L. Classification of diabetic foot wounds. J Foot Ankle Surg.1996;35(6):528-531.

An example of a book reference would be as follows:

Goldenberg E: Soft tissue injuries of the lower extremities. In: Levy LA, Hetherington VJ (eds): Principles and Practice of Podiatric Medicine, Ch. 40, Churchill Livingstone, New York, 1990, pp.967-977.

For all photos, please send digital high-resolution tif files saved at 300 DPI resolution. If the tif files are problematic, high-resolution jpg files should be okay as long as they blow up big on your computer screen. Brief captions also would be helpful. Please do not embed photos in the Word document or send photos in a Power Point format.

Articles can be sent to the attention of Executive Editor Jeff Hall (jhall@hmpcommunications.com ) and Senior Editor Brian McCurdy (bmccurdy@hmpcommunications.com ).
