Practical Gastroenterology publishes articles for the primary care physician, and your article should therefore have a nuts-and-bolts slant. We urge you to keep the nonspecialist in mind as you write your article. We cannot stress strongly enough the importance of focusing your article on information that will be useful and instructive to the primary care physician. In this regard, it would be helpful for you to emphasize prevention and cost (of tests, drugs, surgery, hospital stay, procedures, techniques. etc.) whenever and wherever possible.
