The COQ should be formatted using following headings:
In addition, the following information should be provided for the CME portion of the case:
The Chair should be provided with the manuscript by email as a Microsoft Word document. The Chair of the COQ will be responsible for formatting of the manuscript to ensure consistency. Most of the submissions are approximately 5-8 double-spaced pages of text (MS Word, size 12 font, Times New Roman), including the references, and approximately 5 images. However, one should feel free to make the manuscript shorter or longer, with more or less photos/images as felt necessary.
Information regarding images:
The COQ includes microphotographs and whole slide scan images (WSI). Microphotographs may be emailed as TIFF or JPEG files to the Chair. Original images, at least 1,000 pixels wide, should be submitted.
Once the manuscript and images are ready for formatting, the Chair provides the text and images to the Instructional Design team at ASCP for processing to current website standards. When the text and images are correctly formatted, the ASCP Instructional Design will email the Chair and the contributing authors a link with the web presentation for final approval. Please allow adequate time (approximately 8-10 weeks) for the case to be placed on the SH/EAHP website.
Once the COQ is placed on the SH website, the Chair sends an email to the listserv of the SH that the COQ is ready for viewing.
