Controversies: Call for Abstracts

Arch Intern Med. 2005;165(21):2526. doi:10.1001/archinte.165.21.2526

The ARCHIVES solicits abstract submissions of controversies of interest to a broad spectrum of internists. In the “Controversies in Internal Medicine” section, articles pertaining to a controversial area are paired. One article presents arguments in favor of a particular point of view and the other presents a counterpoint or arguments against that point of view.

Potential authors are invited to submit a 250-word abstract outlining a controversy facing internists today, the position taken regarding this controversy (eg, “pro” or “con”), and a brief summary of arguments supporting that position. If the abstract is selected, the author will be invited to write a full-length article expanding on the abstract. The section editor will select an author for an opposing, or counterpoint, article. After peer review, the two articles will be published as a pair in the journal.
