Dear National Association and Regional Federation Representatives,
On behalf of Prof. Tahir Pillay, IFCC eNews Editor, I call on your contribution for the next issue of the IFCC eNews to appear in April 2017.
Submissions are to be sent to the IFCC office, at the dedicated email address: firstname.lastname@example.org by:
23trd March 2017
Thank you in advance for your continuing support!
The IFCC eNewsletter WG, a section of the CPD, abides by the IFCC mission statement and in order to collaborate with the objectives of the Federation, assures that all appropriate information pertaining to the activities of the Federation are conveyed to members. They include the activities and position statements not only of the IFCC Divisions, Committees and Corporate Members, but also those of the National Societies and Associations. We also welcome local news, news on nominations and honours bestowed on colleagues as they inform every one of your professional environment and opportunities. A few lines will suffice.
Send in short informative texts on new or existing national regulations, policies or initiatives, or position statements from your Association related to the profession. Letters to the Editor on IFCC matters would also be welcomed.
The liberal exchange of ideas, insured by the IFCC eNewsletter, assures a lively and instructive discussion forum.
The news must be related:
1) To National Association / Regional Federation position issues, initiatives or regulations related to clinical chemistry,
2) To activities related to the development of the profession, including short summaries that highlight a particular event of symposia and congresses.
Leader-opinions from key individuals would be highly appreciated, as they would give rise to discussions. The authors should qualify at the end of the article that the views expressed were theirs and not necessarily of the IFCC.
Articles from the IFCC’s Corporate Members are of high importance and they should reflect their activities within IFCC. They should be of educational value not perceived as indirect or “soft” advertising of a company’s products since this could be construed as an endorsement by the IFCC.
In terms of style, the News should be journalistic and limited to approximately 500 words, so as to be attractive to readers. It is understood that the Editor could edit the texts in terms of format, style and language. From 1 to 3 high quality pictures would be appreciated.
