Access invaluable insights for
building your manuscript.
Anesthesiology prioritizes the publication of foundational, enduring research that informs the scientific foundations and clinical practice of perioperative, pain and critical care medicine.
The journal publishes reports of original research investigations in clinical, translational, and clinically relevant basic science as well as substantive reviews, clinically focused reviews, and articles on special topics. Anesthesiology seeks to publish a breadth of topics covering an array of issues affecting the specialty, which will be of interest to scientists and clinicians in the specialty, and broadly in science and medicine. Submitted manuscripts should have a robust evidence-base and present novel and important data or concepts that can be implemented in practice, policy, or future scientific inquiry.
Before submitting your manuscript, review all instructions and consider the following:
  • Does your paper clearly communicate your message, including why this research is important?
  • Is the hypothesis clearly defined and does the study design properly address the hypothesis?
  • Are the conclusions supported by the data?
  • Have you clearly discussed the limitations of your study?
  • Does the manuscript include conclusions that are supported by the study results?
  • Are the figure and table legends written clearly?
Secrets of Successful Manuscript Preparation
The videos below give insight into the expectations of our editors and a blueprint for the creation of successful manuscripts. We’ve selected the content most relevant for guiding authors in manuscript creation and editing prior to submission.
Readers' Toolbox
Anesthesiology regularly publishes Readers’ Toolbox articles which provide general educational overviews intended to increase comprehension among investigators and researchers. These articles present existing and emerging research methods which are, or will become, relevant to anesthesiology research. As part of their purpose is to make investigators aware of new tools and approaches to incorporate into their studies, they provide a valuable resource to authors who benefit from the discussion of research methods and the editorial expectations surrounding use and application of these methods.
