Submit An Article For Publication

ACP invites you to submit articles for publication in the Career Counseling section of our website. This section is intended to be a resource for young physicians who are starting their careers and covers the following categories:

  • Training, Certification, and Licensing
  • Practice and Career Options
  • Searching for the Right Career Opportunity
  • Marketing Yourself
  • The Contract, Compensation, and Malpractice Insurance
  • Personal Finances
  • Setting Up the Practice

ACP appreciates your interest in submitting an article to help us educate and empower our members. Career articles must educate and/or empower our readers. ACP will not publish articles that are primarily promotional in nature.

Submission Guidelines

Article(s) must be submitted as a Word document and double-spaced. Your article should not exceed 1,000 words; if you feel a topic deserves more pages, consider organizing your article into 2 or more separate articles or parts. Tables, figures, images, and graphs are encouraged; graphics should be in .jpg, .gif or .png formats. To be displayed inline with text, graphics must be 400 pixels wide or less; ACP reserves the right to resize or crop to fit. An additional brief biography of the author(s) should be included at the end of your article.

Articles must be spellchecked and proofread for grammatical errors before submitting; ACP will reject content that doesn't meet this requirement. Nevertheless, ACP reserves the right to edit your article as necessary to comply with these submission guidelines.

Submitting an article does not guarantee inclusion in ACP Online. ACP reserves the right to reject an article submission for any reason.

Articles for consideration should be sent to: careercounseling@acponline.org

A submitted or accepted article does not entitle the author(s), their affiliates or any other person financial compensation of any kind. The author(s) name and affiliations will be prominently displayed; however, there will be no compensation from ACP or the users for articles submitted.

The submission of articles to and/or publication by ACP shall not be construed as creating a partnership, joint venture, agency, or employment relationship between the author (s) and ACP.
