- Include your name and email address with the submission. However, if you wish anonymity, you may later opt-out of authorship on the publication and your name will be kept confidential.
- You may submit more than 1 case.
- Send submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org, subject heading, “Errors Case Submission.”
Cases must be received by May 15, 2018.
