Submission Procedure

Tutorial Articles will initially be by invitation, however suggestions for new and timely articles and obvious gaps will be gratefully accepted. Once you have finished the manuscript and the accompanying powerpoint presentation, send the the powerpoint presentation by email to Peter James. The arrival time will be date stamped and the manuscript will be assigned to a journal in the order that they arrive.  The authors cannot chose which Journal they wish to submit the article to. With four journals enrolled in the program, this means that journal  #1 will receive papers #1, #5, #9 etc…, journal #2 will receive papers #2, #6, #10 etc… and so on. 

  • Once the manuscript and powerpoint outline are finished. Send the powerpoint to Peter James
  • The author will then be informed which Journal he/she should submit the manuscript to so that the manuscript can be formatted according to the specific instructions for that journal.
  • The Author submits the article to that specific journal, clearly mentioning the Tutorial Programme.
  • You must submit both the Tutorial manuscript and the Powerpoint show
  • The guest/associate editor is assigned the manuscript for further editorial review.
  • The  manuscript is sent to two reviewers for peer evaluation.
  • The slide show is sent to the education committees for review.


Even though the articles are solicited, there is no guarantee of acceptance by a Journal.  The tutorials will be subject to normal peer review by the Journal and the slide show will be evaluated by the HUPO and EuPA education committees. Only if both the Tutorial article and PowerPoint presentation pass review, will the contributions be accepted.  N.B.  Authors are responsible for assigning copyright to all illustrations used in both the articles and PowerPoint tutorials. The Journals have specific instructions as to how to submit the tutorial manuscripts.
