  • OBM book reviews

What should be included with my submission?

  • Article in Word format

  • Photo of the author(s) in PNG or JPEG format 
  • Figures in the original PC compatible file (Excel, Word, etc.)
  • Two to three quotes from the article that are 30 words or less that you deem as key points (we will potentially highlight these in the newsletter)
  • Keywords

How should my article be formatted?

  • 2-6 pages of content (excluding figures and references) single spaced
  • One space between paragraphs with no indentation at the start of a new paragraph
  • References in APA format
  • Indicate within the article where you would like figures to be placed
  • Include figure captions either within the document or at the end
