Instructions for Authors:

***Note to Authors: please make sure your contact address information is clearly visible on the outside of all packages you are sending to Editors.***

The Editor encourages the submission of articles, book review essays, and comments on topics of interest in legal medicine, health law and policy, professional liability, hospital law, food and drug law, medical- legal research and education, the history of legal medicine, and a broad range of other related topics.

Manuscripts should be double-spaced throughout, with generous margins, and type-written on one side of 8 1/2 " x 11" opaque paper. Manuscripts should be submitted in triplicate (original and two copies), including copies of all illustrations and tables. The cover page should include the title, author's name and address, and a short biographical statement about the author. Footnotes to sources should be numbered in one consecutive series of Arabic numerals and placed at the end of the manuscript. Footnotes must be double-spaced both within and between each footnote. Footnote style must conform to the standards set forth in A Uniform System of Citation, published by the Harvard Law Review Association.

Receipt of manuscripts will be acknowledged promptly, and authors will be notified of acceptance or rejection in a timely fashion. The Editor receives manuscripts with the understanding that they have not been published previously and that they have not been submitted for publication consideration elsewhere. It is requested that the author confirm this fact in writing when transmitting the manuscript for publication consideration.

A statement transferring copyright to the publisher will be required for manuscripts which are accepted for publication. The Editor will supply the necessary forms for this transfer. All manuscripts submitted for publication consideration become the property of the publisher and cannot be returned to authors unless special arrangements are made with the Editor. The corresponding author of each article will receive 50 free reprints of the article and one free copy of the entire issue in which the article appears. Additional reprints may be ordered from Taylor & Francis. Use the reprint order form included with page proofs.

All manuscripts should be addressed to Marshall B. Kapp, J.D., M.P.H., Editor, The Journal of Legal Medicine, Southern Illinois University School of Law, Carbondale, IL 62901-6804, Tel: 618-453-8741, Fax: 618-453-3317, E-mail: kapp@siu.edu
