EDITORIAL

Written by the journal's editors, our gest Editorialist these occasional pieces can cover announcements, highlights of journal content, position statements, and journal updates. Editorialists are expected to provide a balanced opinion of the paper in question and must not have conflict of interest that could compromise their objectivity. Editorials should be no longer than 1500 words, may contain a total of one table or figure (optional), and should not include an abstract.

The Editorial should generally not be divided into subheadings, although on occasion a few subheadings to promote clarity might be permitted at the discretion of the Editor. Opinions stated in Editorials should not be overly speculative and should be supported by facts published in the medical literature.

Editorials are subjected to editing and final approval by the Editor-in-Chief.
