SafeCare accepts unsolicited articles, as we want to share uncommon and creative perspectives. Authors should familiarize themselves with our magazine before sending their submission, and include with it a cover letter referencing any similar articles we published recently, and a short biography.
How to Send Us Your Work: We accept submissions only through email. Your manuscript must be in one of the following file forms: .doc, .docx.
Topics: You may send us manuscripts without commercial branding for the following submission categories: Healthcare Quality, Patient Safety, Healthcare Efficiency; Hospitals; Information Technology, Medical Technology and Devices, Healthcare Leadership, Nursing, the general practice of Medicine, and Best Practices of Care.
Formatting Your Manuscript: All manuscripts should be in 12-point type, with at least one-inch margins, and sequentially numbered pages and double-spaced. The author’s name, credentials, address, telephone number, and email address should be typed at the top of the first page. Contributors are asked to include a brief (one paragraph) biographical note with their submissions.
Timing: Submissions may be sent to us at any time, year-round.
Simultaneous Submissions: We accept multiple submissions, since we feel that it’s unreasonable to expect writers to give a magazine an exclusive look at a work unless the magazine can respond within two to three weeks.
Response Time: Our response time varies from four to eight weeks, with the slowest times usually being December/January.
