While each issue will have features (about 1,200 to 2,500 words) and shorter articles (about 700 to 1,200 words) related to the editorial focus, articles on a variety of topics are published in each issue.

Article review/editing

An article may be reviewed by the MGMA Publications Advisory group. The panel's recommendations are instrumental in the decision to accept an article, request a revised draft or reject it. An editor will contact you if substantial revisions or clarifications are needed.

Articles published contain the expressed opinions and experiences of the authors and do not necessarily represent the viewpoint of MGMA. An editor's note to this effect may be included with opinion pieces or articles that deal with sensitive topics.

How articles will appear

  • Features (about 1,100 to 2,500 words) focus on an in-depth topic related to the issue's main area of focus.
  • Shorter articles (between 700 and 1,000 words) explore a variety of areas related to the Body of Knowledge (BOK).
Authors of accepted articles will receive a "sneak peek" PDF of their article after layout for review prior to publication.
