PREPARATION AND SUBMISSION GUIDELINES FOR CONTINUING EDUCATION ARTICLES

CE Article Submission

If you’ve enjoyed your experience at eRADIMAGING.com, why not become one of our authors and earn honoraria?

Authors wishing to contribute to eRADIMAGING.com should contact editor@eradimaging.com. All CE articles submitted to eRADIMAGING.com should be well referenced and fair balanced. Also, any imaging guidelines or technical factors that are discussed should be generally accepted and not specific to a particular practice because protocols can vary. Manuscripts should consist of original, previously unpublished material. All manuscripts must be written according to American Medical Association Manual of Style and submitted electronically in a Word document, along with any accompanying tables or figures. A list of potential topics is provided below, although we are always open to new topic suggestions.

Cover Page

All submissions should include a Cover Page with the titles and affiliations for all contributing authors; complete correspondence information for the corresponding/lead author (ie, mailing address, e-mail, and phone number); a statement that the manuscript has been read and approved by all authors; and any disclaimers that may be necessary.

Article Components

All CE articles should include the following:

  • 4 Text must be approximately 5250 to 5500 words in length. This word count does not include the abstract, objectives, references,
  • tables/figures, or test.
  • 4 3 to 4 learning objectives
  • A 250-word abstract summarizing the article content
  • Brief Introduction and Conclusions sections
  • A maximum of 6 to 8 tables/figures, incorporating pictures from relevant imaging studies whenever possible (see Tables and Figures below)
  • A complete reference list (see References below)
  • A CE test (see CE Test section for formatting requirements)

CE Test

All of our CE articles are approved by the American Society of Radiologic Technologists and must meet the standards listed below:

  • Each test can include only 2 True/False questions. The rest of the questions must be multiple choice with 4 answer options.
  • Each test can include only 2 True/False questions. The rest of the questions must be multiple choice with 4 answer options.
  • All of the above," "none of the above," and "both a and b, etc." are acceptable options; however only one of these options may be used within the same question.
  • All answer options must be plausible.
  • If words such as "NOT," "ALWAYS," and "EXCEPT," are included in a question, they must be capitalized.
  • Please indicate the answer for each question and where it can be found in the text using the section title and paragraph number, as page numbers shift during editorial reviews.
  • References

    Most importantly, references must be complete and accurate. References should be numbered consecutively in the order in which they are cited throughout the text and listed in detail at the end of the article. Include references for the tables/figures in the reference list. They should be in the order of appearance in the text. Please do not use End Note or other referencing software. Examples of reference style for 3 common citations are shown below. For further information, consult the American Medical Association Manual of Style.

    Tables and Figures

    All tables and figures must be legible, clearly labeled with a number (which corresponds to the number given within the text) and a title. If necessary, tables and figures may include legends or captions. Authors are encouraged to list tables and figures at the end of the manuscript, after the reference list. Please provide native files (eg, original jpgs or PowerPoint slides) if possible. Authors should try to use his/her own images whenever possible, and pictures from relevant imaging studies are always appreciated. If a table/figure is being reprinted, please indicate this under the table/figure, along with a complete citation. Secure and include written permission from the original copyright holder with your submission.

    Editorial Review Process

    All submitted CE articles are reviewed and copyedited by an ASiM editor. The copyedited article is then sent to at least 1 member of the Editorial or Advisory Board to ensure the submission is scientifically valid, accurate, free of bias, and meets the Web site's primary objective. CE articles may need to be modified by the author according to feedback from editors and board members. CE articles require an additional and final review from the accreditor, the American Society of Radiologic Technologists.
