The Journal is published for the benefit of the members of the Louisiana State Medical Society. Manuscripts should be of interest to a broad spectrum of physicians and designed to provide practical information on the current status and the progress and changes in the field of clinical medicine. The articles published are primarily original scientific studies but may include societal, socioeconomic, or medicolegal topics.
Each submission is reviewed by the medical editor and is subject to peer review by one of the editorial consultants. Manuscripts are also subject to editorial revision and to such modification as to bring them into conformity with Journal style. The final decision to accept or revise falls to the medical editor.
Thank you for your interest in the Journal of the Louisiana State Medical Society.
