Guide To Authors

Would you like to write an article for the online journal?
If so, we would like to hear from you

Please email Suzie Calne, Editor of Wounds International journal at to discuss your submission

Title page:

Please include the article title, the full names of the authors and their institutional affiliations, as well as full details of each author's current appointment. This page should also have the name, address, email address and contact telephone number(s) of the corresponding author.

Article points:

Please supply four or five sentences of 15-20 words that summarise the major themes of the article.


In 60–100 words, this should aim to draw the reader into the article as well as broadly stating what the article is about.

Main body:

Use headings liberally and apply formatting to differentiate between heading levels (you may have up to three heading levels). The conclusion should be succinct and logically ordered, ideally identifying gaps in present knowledge and implications for practice, as well as suggesting future initiatives.

Tables and illustrations:

Tables and figures - particularly photographs - are encouraged wherever appropriate. Figures and tables should be numbered consecutively in the order of their first citation in the text. Present tables at the end of the articles; supply figures as logically labelled separate files. If a figure or table has been published previously, acknowledge the original source and submit written permission from the copyright holder to reproduce the material.


All articles must fully referenced. Authors should use the Vancouver style whereby references are indicated in the text by a number with the full list at the end of the article in numerical order.
