Summary "in a nutshell" of Instructions for Authors:

Full instructions—Full instructions available on our website

with original

sources and additional details available at


. All articles must undergo peer-review and receive

approval from at least 3 Editors/Reviewers and are also subject to public posting and review during the peer-

review process to increase "openness" of the review process. Any major dissenting views may be published

along with the publication. Publication does not imply endorsement by all members of



Review Board.

Topics—Case reports, reviews, essays/editorials/opinions are welcome and should be passionate/polemical,

highly creative, densely cited, clinically relevant, socially contextualized, with colorful/relevant graphics.

Case reports and review articles must be scholarly, innovative, and well-presented to clearly and potently

communicate new information. All reasonable publications will be considered; especially: single-article

reviews and refutations, book reviews, surveys/summaries of recent events and conferences.

Organization—Authors are allowed creative flexibility; structure and flow of the article should be intuitive,

logical, and clear. We cherish the blend of scholasticism with artistry.

Grammar—Grammar should be clear and appropriately structured. Avoid use of passive sentence subjects

such as "There are…" and "It is evident…" Brevity is the soul of wit; nonpowerful words and sentences

should be omitted. Focus on direct subjects, powerful verbs, accurate and efficient descriptors.
