Authors are invited to submit manuscripts that describe the results of research projects or rigorous quality improvement programs that were undertaken while they were residents. All manuscripts should be submitted through AJHP's online manuscript submission system. Authors should use this system to submit and track their new manuscripts.
At the time of submission, authors must indicate whether their manuscript should be considered for the Residents Edition, AJHP's regular pages, or either.
Manuscripts are subject to review by qualified external peer reviewers, as well as by the editors. Accepted materials become the permanent and sole property of ASHP and may not be published elsewhere without written permission from both the author and ASHP.
The editors reserve the right to revise all manuscripts submitted, if necessary. The publisher assumes no responsibility for the statements and opinions advanced by contributors to AJHP Residents Edition.
Authors who have questions about submitting manuscripts to AJHP Residents Edition or AJHP should contact the Journal's editorial staff at 301-664-8601 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
For guidance on style, authors should consult the Manuscript Submission Checklist, the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors “Recommendations for the Conduct, Reporting, Editing, and Publication of Scholarly Work in Medical Journals” (www.icmje.org/icmje-recommendations.pdf), and recent issues of AJHP.
All manuscripts published in AJHP Residents Edition should include a photo and brief biographical sketch of the resident author(s). Authors are also encouraged to submit a brief video to supplement the article. Submission of a video is highly encouraged, but it is not required for manuscript acceptance.
Videos, author photos, and biographical information should be submitted with revised manuscripts; it is not necessary to provide this material at the time of original manuscript submission. This material is separate from the routine author identification that is included with all original and revised manuscripts.
- View the instructions for submission of video, author photos, and biographical information.
- Authors must sign ASHP's video/photo authorization and release form. All signed forms must be submitted to email@example.com.
Authors are permitted to submit an article published in AJHP Residents Edition to PubMed Central on the following conditions:
- Permission is granted only for manuscripts that arise from direct funding from a National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant or cooperative agreement, the NIH Intramural Program, or an NIH employee; or direct funding from any other not-for-profit organization that requires authors to submit articles on funded research to a publically available, not-for-profit noninstitutional repository (e.g., PubMed Central, Europe PubMed Central).
- Permission is granted to post only the manuscript that was submitted and accepted for publication but not the final, edited, formatted, and published article. Authors must ensure that the posted content includes a link to the published article on AJHP’s website in order to provide access to the final version, corrections and relevant letters (if any), and article-related features and supplemental content available only via the AJHP website.
- Authors should stipulate that PubMed Central may release the manuscript for public access one year after publication in AJHP.
- Authors should acknowledge the published source of the material.
- Articles published in AJHP are protected by copyright at the time of publication and thereafter. This public access policy does not include permission to use the AJHP logo and trademarks. The article of record on AJHP’s website is the final published version; ASHP assumes no responsibility for earlier versions of articles, as substantive changes and/or corrections can occur after article acceptance. Authors may contact the editorial office with questions about this policy.
