Call for Papers for a Special Issue of Clinical Biochemistry: Men’s Health and Laboratory Medicine
Guest Editors: David G. Grenache and Clement K.M. Ho
Submission Deadline for articles: November 1, 2013
Clinical Biochemistry will devote a Special Issue to Men’s Health and Laboratory Medicine to highlight the role of clinical diagnostics in health issues that concern men. Although some may overlap with women’s concerns, others are unique to men’s health problems such as prostate cancer and low testosterone.
For this Special Issue, we invite submissions such as original research papers or review articles on relevant topic areas that may include but are not limited to:
Prostate specific antigen testing
Male-factor infertility/semen analysis
Traumatic brain injury
X-linked inherited disorders
Doping for enhanced athletic performance
Selected contributions (review articles or original papers) will be considered for publication in the Special Issue. All submitted papers will be subjected to initial editorial review to determine whether they meet the scope of the Clinical Biochemistry and are also appropriate for the special issue. Once selected, the contribution will follow the peer revision process of the journal Clinical Biochemistry.
The use of colour is free in your article and Illustrations generally enhance the educational value of your article. The journal will publish a high resolution version of your artwork in the html version of your article. Further, we can inform you that there are no page or figure restrictions – scientific quality and relevance are the main criteria.
Upon publication the corresponding author will receive at no costs a PDF file of the published article via e-mail, as well as a complimentary copy of the issue in which the article appears.
If you are interested in contributing your selected paper to this Special Issue, please send us an e-mail including the tentative title of your contribution and the article type (review article or research paper). Send your reply before June 15, 2013 to:
David G. Grenache and Clement K.M. Ho
firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com
or to Andy Deelen (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Further information regarding preparation and submission of the articles will be sent to the authors when the list of authors/topics has been finalized.
