We are always looking for CE authors and surgical procedures that haven’t been written about or the latest advancements on a commonplace surgery. You don’t have to be a writer to contribute to the Journal. We’ll help you every step of the way, AND you’ll earn CE credits by writing a CE article that gets published! Here are some guidelines to kick start your way on becoming an author: An article submitted for a CE must have a unique thesis or angle and be relevant to the surgical technology profession. The article must have a clear message and be accurate, thorough and concise. It must be in a format that maintains the Journal’s integrity of style. It must be an original topic (one that hasn’t been published in the Journal recently.) How to Get Started The process for writing a CE can be painless. We are here to assist you every step of the way and make sure that you are proud of your article. • Write to [email protected], and state your interest in writing, and what topic you would like to author. • Submit an outline of your proposed topic for review. Once the outline is returned to you for approval, begin writing your manuscript.
