The editorial staff of the Archives of Surgery would like to announce a new section titled The Residents' Corner. The main objectives of this section are to encourage residents to prepare peer-reviewed manuscripts, allow residents to critically evaluate manuscripts by their peers, and encourage residents to read and review manuscripts in surgical journals. At the time of submission to The Residents' Corner, the first author must be a resident in training. The submission must be accompanied by a letter or e-mail from the resident's program director verifying that the resident is in good standing. We encourage the submission of short articles limited to 1000 words and no more than 3 figures. A narrative abstract of no more than 135 words should be included. We will consider any appropriate short article, but envision the submission of interesting case reports, small case series, historical reviews, summaries of recent developments in surgery, and laboratory studies.
The review process will be supervised by the editorial staff of the Archives of Surgery and coordinated by two Resident Editors, Jayme Locke, MD, and Jordan Winter, MD. We will request peer reviews from other residents nationally and globally. When submitting articles for this section, please select The Residents' Corner as the manuscript type in our online peer review and submission system. We look forward to this exciting new section and to the training of our younger colleagues.
