Bylined Article Checklist

  • Contributed healthcare articles should be 700 words or less, be educational and informative, and take a specific angle about something in the related field, rather than an advertisement of an organization.
  • Articles should be sent as a Word (PC) or Pages (Mac) document and written in the third-person, unless the submission is an opinion piece approved by the editor. Our editor reserves the right to refuse individual articles once they have been submitted and reviewed.
  • Include a suggested title for the article and the author’s byline.
  • Do not include footnotes or endnotes. Any appropriate references should be incorporated into the narrative of the article itself.
  • Include a two-line biography of each author. Please also include the author(s)’ name(s), title(s), and organization(s).
  • Send a digital photo of the author or a photo relevant to the piece (300 dpi), along with a cutline.

  • We welcome and encourage photos (300 dpi) with submissions.
  • All press releases should offer a clear, thorough description of your product or service.
  • If your product or service is not healthcare specific, it is helpful to tell us how it is applicable to the healthcare community.
