eNews guidelines

The news must be related:

1) to National Association / Regional Federation position issues, initiatives or regulations related to clinical chemistry,

2) to activities related to the development of the profession, including short summaries that highlight a particular event of symposia and congresses.

Leader-opinions from key individuals would be highly appreciated as they would give rise to discussions. The authors should qualify at the end of the article that the views expressed were theirs and not necessarily of the IFCC.

Articles from the IFCC’s Corporate Members are of high importance and they should reflect their activities within IFCC. They should be of educational value not perceived as indirect or “soft” advertising of a company’s products since this could be construed as an endorsement by the IFCC.

In terms of style, the News should be journalistic and limited to approximately 500 words so as to be attractive to readers. It is understood that the Editor could edit the texts in terms of format, style and language. From 2 to 3 high quality pictures would be appreciated.
