Instructions to ContributorsMaterial submitted for publication should preferably be sent as a Word document attached to an email addressed to email@example.com. Illustrations should be sent as .jpg files attached to an email. Pictures are normally converted to black and white for publication.

Pharmaceutical Historian. The ‘Vancouver’ style of references used by the
Pharmaceutical Journal or British Medical Journal is preferred, except that the
titles of all journals and books should be in italics, with a numbered list of
references at the end rather than as footnotes.
