These are usually commissioned. We are, however, happy to consider and peer review unsolicited editorials. Please remember that the primary audience for our editorials comprises generalists, including general practitioners.

We are keen to consider editorials, or ideas for editorials, from authors outside the UK.

Please make clear the evidence base of each key statement:

  • Expert opinion;
  • Personal clinical experience;
  • Observational studies;
  • Trials; or
  • Systematic reviews.

Editorials should be up to 800 words long with no more than 12 references. Please include a title page giving all authors' names, addresses, email addresses, phone and fax numbers, as well as statements of competing interests and copyright/licence to publish.
