About Brief Reviews

The Editorial Board of the Bulletin Brief encourages submission of concise reviews that have educational value for surgeons. All submissions, which have a word count limit of approximately 2,000 words (excluding tables and references), will be peer reviewed by the Editorial Board and readers will be eligible to claim CME credits after reading each review. Authors will be notified when reviews are scheduled for publication and a statement indicating that the accepted submission was peer reviewed will be provided so that a reference can be included in the author's list of publications.

Please send your submission to Matthew Fox, MSHC, Digital Managing Editor, ACS Division of Integrated Communications, at mfox@facs.org.
