Case of the Month

Instructions to contributors

Objectives

The “Case of the Month” intends to utilise a practical real-life case scenario to expand the participant's knowledge, develop a critical thinking approach to problem solving and test the acquired knowledge.

Who can contribute?

Any member or supporter of the Society with suitable background is welcome to send us her/his case by completing the “Case of the Month” form. The contributor must adhere to the word limits and anonymity rules. The author may submit a maximum of three articles as suitable for further reading. These must be (1) primarily review articles, though one of the three may be a research article, (2) are in the public domain and not subject to copyright restriction or alternatively permission has been sought from the author, and (3) the original author is fully acknowledged in the text. They should be submitted as pdf file.

What happens after submission?

The submission will be reviewd by two BSGI nominated reviewers. We will specifically assess its suitability for our members, adherence with anonymity rules, scientific content, appropriateness of the further reading material, correctness of the questions format and content. The author will be informed of the Society’s decision, which may be (1) accept, (2) accept after corrections, or (3) decline. The Society will acknowledge the writer and source of images.

Format and setting of questions

Up to 10 questions based on the case presentation and further reading list are allowed. The preferred format is the "Single Best Answer" consisting of a stem and up to 5 possible answers with only one being most applicable and correct. In a separate file, the author should provide the correct answer for each question and outline the evidence that exists to support the chosen answer from the further reading list. The correct answers will be made public after the article's expiry date.
