Notes

Authors should specify in their cover letter whether the graphic work depicts nonfiction, fiction, or a fictionalized account of true events.

If the work is nonfiction, we ask that the authors mask the identity of people who are depicted. In addition, the editors feel it is important for authors to show the graphic work to all persons depicted and to obtain their permission to publish the material.

Although Annals does not require signed permission from the subjects depicted in Annals Graphic Medicine, we do require the authors to state in writing whether they obtained the subjects' permission. If the author has not obtained permission, he or she should explain the reasons for its absence in a cover letter that accompanies the work. We will consider nonfiction material that does not have the subject’s permission at the editors’ discretion.

Both color and black-and-white submissions are acceptable and should be provided as a complete, single PDF file no larger than 30 Mb. (A larger file for higher resolution of accepted work may be submitted later if necessary.) We cannot accept submissions of hard copy work, but can accept videos.
Annals cannot accept scripts without artwork or art samples without a story.

Annals will not consider work that has been previously published or posted online, but may consider work that has been previously posted in part in certain venues at the editors’ discretion.

Submissions accepted for publication will generally be published in electronic-only form on Annals.org.
