看看Images in Clinical Medicine上的图片，大家觉着并没有什么稀奇的。可是稀奇的是有人却能发表！因此思维不一样，结果也不一样。大家在临床工作中，时刻保持一份警觉，没准你就能在NEJM上发表一篇图片病例报道。
不过，NEJM的Images in Clinical Medicine的投稿要求不太好找，虽然在NEJM的Author Center中有，但是隐藏的较深。科研动力本人就直接把Images in Clinical Medicine的要求扒过来，以备所需。
Images in Clinical Medicine

This feature is intended to capture the sense of visual discovery and variety that physicians experience. Images in Clinical Medicine are not intended as a vehicle for case reports. Please see specific instructions for Images in Clinical Medicine.

Original, high-quality images are considered for publication (subject to editing and abridgment) provided they do not contain material that has been submitted or published elsewhere. To submit an image for publication in theJournal, please follow the submission instructions below. At the discretion of the Editor, images may appear in the print version of the Journal, the electronic version, or both.

- Please provide the name, highest academic degree, address, e-mail address, telephone number, and fax number of each author.
- The legend should contain no more than 150 words.
You may either upload your figures separately or include figures in the text file. We prefer the former. For information regarding digital images and video submissions, please review the Technical Guidelines for Submission of Figures.
For figures, it is permissible to send low-resolution images for peer review, although we may ask for high-resolution files at a later stage. Please submit a high-resolution still image with any video submission.
Please include one version of the figure with appropriate labeling and arrows identifying structures and one without labels and arrows. Each original should include an arrow indicating the top of the image. Occasionally, ICMs have more than one panel. Please label them Panel A, Panel B, etc.
The legend to the image should succinctly present relevant clinical information, including a short description of the patient's history, relevant physical and laboratory findings, clinical course, response to treatment (if any), and condition at last follow-up. All labeled structures in the image should be described and explained in the legend. The legend should have callouts corresponding to each panel, if there is more than one.
You will need to log in to our submission system to submit an image. Once logged in, click on "Submit a New Manuscript" and follow the instructions at the top of each screen.

Technical Guidelines for Submission of Figures
This refers to images containing gradations of color or shades of gray (such as photomicrographs, electron micrographs, Western blots, radiographic images, and ECG and EEG tracings).
Send two electronic originals: one with appropriate labeling and arrows identifying structures and an indication of the top of the image and one clean copy of the image without labels and arrows.
The following formats are preferred for submission of digital files of photographic images:
- Adobe Photoshop

Guidelines for resolution of photographic images (raster graphics):266 dpi/ppi for color or grayscale photographic images.
