Submission Guidelines


We invite writers and artists to submit pitches and work to be considered for publication. Please send pitches to editorial@cmaj.ca

Journalism pitches should be written in the body of your email. A successful pitch will provide a description of your subject, evidence of original research and intended approach and intended format, and your credentials. Samples of previous work should be provided as attachments (.doc, .docx, or .rtf for text and .jpg for photos and illustrations) or web links.

Please note:
  • Do not follow up on your pitch by phone; we will respond by email.
  • CMAJ News does not accept simultaneous submissions.
  • Before sending a pitch, make sure you are familiar with the breadth and style of content at CMAJ News, and confirm that your story idea isn’t one that has already been examined by CMAJ News and that it concerns a topic relevant to a Canadian audience.
  • CMAJ News receives frequent submissions. Please allow us a few days to respond to your query before following up.
