Media Publishing Company Guide To Contributors
Original papers, reviews, audits, case reports and correspondence should all be sent to:
The Editors, Media Publishing Company, Media House
48 High Street, Swanley, Kent, BR8 8BQ
All material will be reviewed for possible publication on the understanding that it has not been submitted to another publication or been previously published in whole or in part (unless in abstract form) and a covering letter, signed by all the authors, to that effect should accompany the item(s). Manuscripts can be accepted on an IBM-compatible 3.5″ floppy disk in most commonly available Word Processing formats or via e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org Information on the program used should accompany the disk. Photographs and illustrations can also be sent on disk – once again giving information of the process used. The disk must be accompanied by TWO hard copies printed from the disk. Legends for photographs and illustrations must be typed on a separate sheet of paper and the photographs annotated accordingly. They must be marked for orientation. Hard copy material should be typed in double-space, with wide margins and all pages must be numbered. The title page should include the name of the author(s) together with their current addresses or hospitals. All correspondence will be addressed to the first-named author unless otherwise directed. Manuscripts, disks and photographs will be returned if requested. All material will be destroyed three months after publication unless the publishers receive other instructions as to its disposal.
References: References should broadly follow the Vancouver System and should be shown throughout the text consecutively, typed in square brackets, and listed numerically at the end of the article. If there are fewer than FIVE authors all names should be given in full. Where there are more than five authors, the full names of the first five only should be given, followed by et al. Journal titles should be given in full and be followed by the year of publication, the volume (and/or supplement) number and the page numbers. Editors, publishers, publication dates and country of origin should follow book titles.
Abbreviations and Symbols: Authors should refer to Units, Symbols and Abbreviations published by the Royal Society of Medicine.
Reprints: Reprints, and/or run-ons, of published material are available on payment of the necessary costs; requests for reprints indicating the number required should be addressed to the Publisher.
