Forms for ScholarOne

As part of the launch of ScholarOne, the MJA has digitised and streamlined several of its forms. All authors will be emailed and asked to update their professional information in ScholarOne. This information will be used for publication should your manuscript be accepted.

Forms to be uploaded

  • Manuscript template
  • Revision checklist
  • Consent for publication of personal material (All manuscript submissions, in which living or deceased patients are described, if any patients are potentially identifiable in the text or images, even if this is just by the patient/s themselves or health care staff who have looked after the patient, are required to submit a signed patient permission form.) This form must be signed by the patient, guardian or next-of-kin. Verbal consent is not permitted. Please note we do not accept patient consent forms from institutions or other medical journals.
