However, if a particularly extensive manuscript is accepted, the editors may encourage the author to publish it in instalments (either in the same issue or in consecutive issues).
All original theory and research articles must include a structured abstract of no more than 250 words. The structure of the abstract should mirror the required sections for each paper type outlined below (excluding the literature review section).
All theory and research articles must include, immediately below the abstract on the same page, a section entitled "Implications for Interprofessional Practice." Within this section, authors must provide 3-5 items (arranged in a numerical list) that describe in plain language the implications of the study's findings for either practice, education or both. Authors should focus on why the manuscript should be of concern/interest and how its conclusions will impact either patient care or practitioner education. It will benefit authors to understand the review criteria for this manuscript type.

Submissions to this section may include either case reports or case conferences. Case reports should focus on interprofessional care experiences and suggest strategies for successful interprofessional treatment of specific conditions.

The author(s) must have obtained written consent from the patient to use his/her case for the purposes of publication. This document must be available for editorial review at any time, but should not be submitted with the manuscript. An example of language that is appropriate for this statement is provided by the Journal of Medical Case Reports: "Written informed consent was obtained from the patient for publication of this case report and accompanying images. A copy of the written consent is available for review by the Editor-in-Chief of this journal."
Case conferences should use the following suggested format (deviations are acceptable where appropriate):
Case conferences should be certain to emphasize points where interprofessional communication/collaboration would be beneficial to patient care. If possible, cases should not be about specific patients (if so, consent is needed as with case reports).
