Chapters in Review
Revised: 2 December 2016


This page lists all of our chapters currently being reviewed. Each chapter is divided up into several sections and we are looking for one author per section (NOT per chapter). An author may only request one section at a time, but once that section is completed the author may request another. If a section already has an author listed, or says 'reserved', please do not request it. Authors may request any section within their area of expertise. To view what is currently in each chapter and section, click on the title above the corresponding table. To request a section, please email our Author coordinator at [email protected]. Thank you very much for your interest in contributing to PathologyOutlines.com.
