  • A primer on a hot new topic in your field
  • A case study or clinical example that you think deserves publication
  • The core concepts of a topic, which would be beneficial to a student’s understanding

What is the benefit to me in publishing in this format?

See your content published quickly! Upon acceptance of your manuscript, the typical publication timeline is 8-12 weeks.
