10 Tips: A Checklist for Authors

    1. Include your name (and names of co-authors), affiliation, and contact information (complete mailing address, phone, fax, email) on title page of manuscript.

    2. Ensure your chapter title is the same as it appears on the table of contents.

    3. Paginate each page of the manuscript to maintain proper order.

    4. All text must be double-spaced, including references and figure legends.

    5. If illustrations are included, each must be labeled and cited within the text of the manuscript, a legend must accompany every image, and the quality must be good so that the image can be reproduced clearly. Accepted forms of artwork include glossy prints, slides, computer-generated line art, and an artist's (medical illustrator) rendering of images.

    6. If borrowing material from a previously published source, written permission must be obtained and submitted with the manuscript. We cannot publish anything that has appeared in other work without written permission.

    7. All references must be numbered and cited within the manuscript in chronological order.

    8. If using tables, each must be cited within the text.

    9. A CD containing text, references, tables, and figure legends should be submitted with the manuscript. If using artwork created electronically, submit a printout of all illustrations along with the electronic files on disk.

      Electronic guidelines: line art should be submitted as a TIFF file using Adobe Illustrator or Macromedia Freehand in a resolution of 1000 dpi. Black and white halftone art should be scanned using PhotoShop in a resolution of 300 dpi. Density ranges for halftone art to allow for quality reproduction should be 2-3% highlights and 95-97% shadows.

  1. Proper order of manuscript: title page, text, references, tables, figure legends, figures.

How to submit a book proposal

Preparing a proposal is the first important stage in developing your project. In order to ensure that Thieme can carefully assess the merits of your idea and arrive at a careful publishing decision, we recommend that your proposal include the following elements:

1. The Market
  • What is the market for which your project is intended?
  • What is the level (medical student, house officer, fellow, specialist, generalist)?
  • What trends or new developments in medical practice or education are likely to affect the development and marketing of your book?
  • Are there additional audiences (e.g., nurses, physician assistants, pharmacists, technicians)?

2. The Competition
  • What are the major competitors (including price and length)?
  • What are their strengths and weaknesses?
  • Given the targeted market, review of major competitors, and your project plan, what special advantages will your text offer to potential readers?
  • Specifically, what will it do better than current offerings?

3. The Table of Contents and Organization
  • Number of editors?
  • Single or multicontributed?
Describe the coverage of each chapter, citing topics that will be unique to your book, what is innovative about the organization, and how your approach is superior to that of the most successful competitors.

Preparing a table of contents and listing prospective authors will help you to refine plans for overall structure, and it will enable the publisher and reviewers to evaluate the organizational logic and pedagogic strategy.

4. The Format
  • What is the projected length in double-spaced manuscript pages?
  • What are your plans for the art program? - How many line art illustrations? - How many halftones (photographs)? - Any color? If so, how many plates?
5. The Schedule
  • When do you anticipate delivering complete, final, production-ready manuscript?
6. Special Considerations

Are there special considerations in development (e.g., market research, use of consultants), production, or marketing that we should take into account in evaluating your project?
Sample Chapters
Although the prospectus and annotated table of contents reveal the thinking behind your conception of the book, it is the draft chapters that demonstrate whether its potential will be realized. Please send sample chapters to the publisher, if available.
Please provide us with a copy of your curriculum vitae, including your teaching and research experience; degrees and affiliations; prior publications; special qualifications; awards. Please be sure to provide your mailing address, office hours, and telephone numbers as well as fax and email address.
Reviewer and Consultant Suggestions
Your recommendations of reviewers-authorities in the field, medical educators, practitioners, or specific topic experts-would be most welcome.
