Manuscript Submission

Submit a Manuscript Now 

If your manuscript fits within the scope of the journal, we encourage you to submit. Acceptance is contingent on favorable peer review.

Our user-friendly electronic manuscript submission and peer review system allows you to submit your manuscript online securely, conveniently, and instantly. Authors can track the progress of their manuscripts from submission to publication. Assistance is available via e-mail if needed.

First-time submitters will need to register for an account. After you follow the link above for the submission page, select “New authors should register for an account.” Note that this account is separate from the account you use to access Psychiatrist.com and CMEInstitute.com, so even if you are already registered to access our sites (which provides the ability to obtain free CME credit), you will still need to establish an account to use the manuscript submission system.

Authorship / Copyright / Disclosure / Acknowledgment Form

See the form in PDF format. At the time of article submission, each author must submit a form incorporating 4 statements: (1) authorship, (2) copyright transfer or federal employment, and (3) financial or other relationships that might pose a conflict of interest. The corresponding author must sign (4) the Acknowledgment statement. This form can be mailed to Physicians Postgraduate Press, P.O. Box 752870, Memphis, TN 38175-2870, faxed to the Production Coordinator at 901-273-2752, or scanned and uploaded during the electronic submission process.
