Author / Editor Inquiries
If you are interested in becoming a contributing author or editor of the JOP please contact us by filling out the Contact JOP Form.
To All Authors
As you know JOP is written for both health care professionals and the lay public. It is important to remember this when you are writing. Because of this, we require that every submission (except comments by readers) must be read by at least three people (excluding yourself) with at least one of them being a doctor (medical doctor or osteopathic physician) and one being a lay person. Thus, before submission, four people (including yourself) have reviewed the transcript, that it is grammatically correct and is professionally written but yet is easy to understand.
Authors, please write in the most succinct way to get the point across and do your best to make the manuscript visually appealing! We definitely want illustrations, graphs, etcs…we also would like authors to send a picture of themselves and a short biography on themselves (One paragraph) to make the articles more personal.
GENERALLY, WE WILL LET YOU KNOW WITHIN ONE MONTH, IF YOUR ARTICLE IS:
- Accepted “as is” for submission (in the journal),
- If revisions need to be made and then the article resubmitted,
- If we would like to post it on the website, but not in the journal,
- Or it is rejected and the reasons for rejection.
