How to Submit Your Story Idea to The Rheumatologist
The Rheumatologist publishes articles about news, trends, and issues in rheumatology. Every story must present practical, usable information for our readers—material that is immediately helpful to them in their professional lives.
If you have a story idea, e-mail a query to Editor Dawn Antoline or Physician Editor Simon M. Helfgott, MD. Please do not send completed manuscripts. A query consists of a few paragraphs that tell us why our readers would value the story, potential experts or sources for the story, and how the story would influence the provision of rheumatology. In your query, include your name, title, and organization, as well as a daytime phone number.
