Mistakes That Authors Make in Their Submissions to Family Medicine
The Family Medicine editorial team wants authors to be successful and has come up with the following list of common errors to avoid when submitting a manuscript.
The journal is interested in curriculum designed for medical students and residents, projects that impact resident and faculty work life, as well as policy papers that comment on issues related to the discipline. The journal is also interested in papers describing DEIA initiatives developed in departments, residencies, and medical schools. We publish research, narratives, and commentaries.
It is our hope that this blog post helps authors consistently submit strong papers in the future.
