Have you had a patient case that challenged your clinical skills? We invite you to share your stories of unique patient presentations, complex treatments, and teachable moments with your colleagues. Each Case Study accepted for publication will get you one chance to win an iPad.

A Case Study focuses on clinical cases of interest to oncology nurses. Click here for examples of previously published Case Studies. Manuscripts should be written in the standard case-followed-by-discussion format and should be 1500 to 2000 words long.
Please review our Author Guidelines at https://www.oncologynurseadvisor.com/home/author-guidelines/ for the complete list of manuscript preparation requirements. A summary of the most important requirements is below.
Your Case Study must include the following:
A title page. On the title page, list all authors in the order they should appear on the published article. Identify the corresponding author if there is more than one author. For each author, include full name with degrees, followed by work affiliations with city and state (as they should appear in the bio box on the published article) and contact information (mailing address, phone and fax numbers, e-mail address).
Photographs and imaging studies, if you are submitting them, as high-resolution digital image files. The format may be jpg, tif, or eps. As a general rule, high-resolution equals a minimum of 300 dpi, which typically translates into a file size of 400KB or larger. These images should be of the patient discussed in the case and relate to diagnosis or treatment.
Teaching Points: A list of 3 to 5 take-home points for the reader.
Note that authors should not submit an article for publication in any other journal while it is being considered for publication in Oncology Nurse Advisor and should not submit to ONA a manuscript that is currently under consideration elsewhere.
E-mail the manuscript files to email@example.com. Electronic submission of an editable Word file is required. We cannot consider hard copy manuscripts or pdf files.
