Submit an abstract for AWS special issue

The Association of Women Surgeons is delighted to announce that our second annual issue of The American Journal of Surgery highlighting work by AWS members was published in October 2014. We had an overwhelming response, with 44 manuscripts submitted and a total of 19 articles accepted; a true testament to the great work of our members.  

We are pleased to announce the first call for manuscripts for the 2015 annual issue, which will be published in October. Original research, formal systematic reviews, and meta-analyses are appropriate for submission. Invited manuscripts on topics mutually agreed upon by AWS and AJS may be solicited individually where appropriate. The AWS/AJS Editors Lois Killewich, MD; Marie Crandall, MD, MPH; and Katie Nason, MD, MPH will serve as guest editors of The American Journal of Surgery to coordinate this

Authors interested in submitting manuscripts should email Lois Killewich at lakillew@UTMB.EDU by December 23, 2014, with the subject area and title, if available. This will allow the editors to create AJS/AWS-specific manuscript invitations that will be sent out to authors directly from the AJS. The final manuscript submission date will be February 17, 2014. This will allow optimal time for the manuscripts to move through the review and editorial processes for an October publication date.

Note, you or one of your co-authors MUST be an AWS member if you want to submit a manuscript. If you are not a current member of AWS, click here to join now . The editors will send author submission instructions SPECIFIC to this Journal special issue once you email us your intention to submit.
