Submission of Graphic Novels to Annals of Internal Medicine
The Annals of Internal Medicine welcomes submission of original graphic narratives, comics, animation/video and other creative forms addressing medically-relevant topics. Healthcare providers are encouraged to submit work capturing the experiences of those who provide and receive care- be they poignant, thought-provoking, or just plain entertaining.
Submissions will be evaluated for their originality, likely interest to our broad world-wide readership, and visual appeal. Selected submissions will be sent for confidential external review, and those accepted will be posted on our website, which receives over 1,000,000 visitors per month (annals.org), and be viewable on our popular iPad edition.
- Submit your work electronically at https://www.acponline.org/authors.
Both Color and Black & White submissions are acceptable. Fill in the requested information at our website and attach your work as a complete single pdf file no larger than 30Mb. A larger file for higher resolution of accepted work may be submitted later if necessary.
- We can only review completed projects. We cannot accept scripts without artwork, or art samples without a story.
- We cannot accept graphic work by postal mail.
- We cannot accept previously published work, although we may be able to accept work that has been previously posted in part at certain venues.

Can you confirm the Annals is accepting submissions of graphic novels. I cannot find any details about it anywhere on their site or elsewhere.
Comic Nurse says
I can confirm it, an editor spoke via Skype at our conference in Brighton. They are interested.
thanks. And right after I sent the comment, I found the section about it hidden in their submission guidelines. Sigh.
