Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM), Campus UNAM-Juriquilla, Querétaro, México May 22 - 25, 2013


Paper Submission Information

Selected presentations will be published in a special issue of General and Comparative Endocrinology dedicated to NASCE 2013.  Plenary speakers are invited to submit either a "major"- or a "mini"-review.  Invited symposium speakers (oral presentations) will be invited to submit either a review or an original research manuscript.  A number of other speakers or poster presented will be specifically invited at a later date. All manuscripts will be peer-reviewed through the usual GCE process.  The Handling Editor will be Vance L. Trudeau (Canada) and the Honorary Editors will be the NASCE 2013 host Carlos Aramburo (Mexico) and Bob Denver (USA).

For this Special Issue, we will consider review articles, mini-reviews, and original research manuscripts. Extended abstracts will not be considered. Any submission that appears to be too preliminary, a shorter version of a more complete study, a study that is too short, or resembling previously published work will be returned without external review. We are seeking innovative contributions in comparative endocrinology. 

Target deadline for submission online to GCE: July 1, 2013.  There will be a special link identifying the NASCE 2013 special issue.
Target publication date in GCE (printed copy):  January 2014

Note about all submissions of any type: Because this is a special issue, authors are allowed to publish 4 figures in color at no charge. However, there is a charge for the 5th and additional color figures.
Major reviews: 15 to 30 pages doubled spaced, no limit on the number of figures.
Mini-reviews:  up to 12 pages doubled space; limit of up to four figures.
