Author Guidelines

OR Manager is a monthly national newsletter for directors of surgical departments in hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers. Our goal is to provide our readers with relevant, up-to-date information they can use to take care of their patients and lead their departments successfully.

Submitted articles are welcome. Submissions will be reviewed by our consulting editors and members of our advisory board, with the authors’ identity and institution blinded.

Because we are not an academic journal, we ask that articles be written in a succinct, practical style. The suggested length is 1,000 to 2,000 words. In describing research results, there is no need to follow a formal research outline, although the article should clearly summarize the research methodology and results.

Articles may be submitted by e-mail. The preferred method is e-mail in a standard word-processing format, preferably Microsoft Word. Please include a message with the document listing the author’s name, credentials, and contact information.

If you have questions, please call the editor, Elizabeth Wood, at 301-354-1786 or e-mail
