ASOHNS Journal Supplement
The ASOHNS Journal Supplement is published in collaboration with the Journal of Laryngology and Otology (JLO) twice a year as a supplement, which can be accessed online free of charge to ASOHNS members. A hard copy of each supplement is also posted to members.
These should report clinical research or audit and should not normally exceed 7500 words. Review Articles and Historical Articles are especially encouraged. The main JLO states that these should not exceed 3000 words but the editor of the Supplement can specifically commission larger reviews. If you would anticipate a larger word limit being required, please contact me for advice.
Clinical Records (Case Reports):
These have a high rate for rejection and this can lead to disillusionment-on to the training scheme. A commissioned review (see above) is more likely to be accepted and should be considered as a very real alternative to a case report or extended case series. If a case report is submitted, it should be no more than 1500 words, with four authors as a maximum and should be confined either to single cases without precedent in the world literature or to cases that illustrate some entirely new facet in management or investigation. The search strategy used must be detailed. Relevant papers will also be published under the headings Radiology, Pathology or Oncology in Focus: such submissions must normally include the radiologist, pathologist or oncologist who has been involved as co-author.
How I Do It:
These should be articles illustrating surgical technique or the use of technical innovation. As with Clinical Records the manuscript should not exceed 1500 words and with a maximum of four authors. Articles should be clearly illustrated with line art from a laser printer.
Electronic submissions should be submitted via the website at:
