I writing an informative medical paper and I'm close to being done with. My question is does anyone know where I can submit the paper to? I've looked up many different magazines but can't seem to figure out who will take a medical paper from someone who's not a doctor or nurse. Any and all advice would be helpful. :)

I start out telling giving fact based on research about the digestive tract and ulcerative colitis. Now I'm going into the part where I give most of the basic things my husband has been through and so on. Though I think one of my problems is going to be my word count which has already at 2510 word count and I'm still writing away adding more information as I go along. :)

I submitted an article to an English magazine called "Family Doctor". That was a long time ago. It was about the danger of having a water heater in the bathroom, leading to carbon monoxide poisoning. Maybe they have a similar magazine in America that you can submit to. Good luck!

Oldtimer thank you again. I did a google search on family magazine and found one called "The Journal Of Family Practice" based out of New Jersey. I sent a query and hope they respond soon. :)

I found a few other places to submit this paper due to a suggestion of a another fellow writer. I've been able now to send in three queries now. I hope that one of them work out. :)

Wow, I never new how hard it is to get a medical paper submitted. I have try a couple of magazines and heard back from two of them. One said they don't publish that kind of manuscript. The other one said they don't accept non peer reviewed research papers. I want lose hope, I'll just have to keep submitting until someone says they can take it. :)

Sorry to hear about the rejections, Roda. I half-expected you would be faced with the 'peer review' situation, but I hope you can overcome that. Keep plugging. Perhaps you should try journals that are not quite so "medical" if you know what I mean.
