Instructions for Artists
The Permanente Journal is always interested in considering artwork by health care professionals. If you would like to submit art for consideration for the cover or interior of The Permanente Journal, please use the following guidelines:
Submission should be a high-quality color photograph of your art no smaller than 4x5 and no larger than 8x10. For cover art submission, portrait orientation is preferred. For submission purposes, all that is needed is a low-resolution image file of 72 dpi in jpg format. However, should your artwork be accepted, you will be required to submit a high-resolution image.
Please complete a cover letter explaining your association with the health care field, art background, medium, size, and a brief statement about the artwork (description, inspiration, etc). Also include your contact information (address, phone & fax numbers, and e-mail address).
Artwork Submission Instructions
Artwork submissions are now being processed through ScholarOne Manuscripts. If you are submitting artwork, your submission process will be truncated. If you are submitting more than one image, please process each image as a separate submission. You will be required to submit a higher resolution image if your artwork is accepted for publication.
NOTE: Please read ALL of these instructions before beginning your submission process.
