Call for AMP Case Reports for CAP Today


This is your chance to educate readers of CAP Today (circulation 50k), highlight your expertise, and provide service to AMP! Submit your report by February 14!


We are seeking volunteers from each AMP Subdivision to draft case reports for potential publication in CAP Today. These case reports are intended to help pathologists understand the power and appropriate use of molecular tests. The teaching strategy will be to take them from what they do know, e.g., special stains, to new knowledge in the molecular pathology field. Case reports will be reviewed by the AMP Publications and Communications Committee and select reports will be chosen for submission to CAP Today.  

General information and guidelines for the reports include:

  • A clinical case (no patient identifiers) that illustrates the important role of molecular testing to achieve an appropriate diagnosis, prognosis, role in treatment selection, etc.  The case should emphasize the role of molecular diagnostics in patient care rather than the technical aspects of the test.

  • The case should not serve as a promotional piece for a specific product or brand.

  • Length: approximately 1,000 words (flexible, depending on need to communicate case)

  • Narrative format, images, tables and diagrams can be used and are encouraged – color, if available. Please plan to submit your file as a high resolution PDF with images and fonts included.  If accepted for submission to CAP Today, AMP may contact you to send a word file and image files separately.

  • Three questions about the case with answers. The questions will appear in the article and the answers will appear on the AMP Website. These do not need to be exam-caliber questions.

  • Short list of relevant references. List should be in order of appearance, not alpha by author.

  • List of authors including degrees and title within organization.

  • Authors will have the opportunity to review and comment upon any revisions desired by the AMP Publications and Communications Committee or the CAP Today editors.

  • The corresponding author must be a current AMP member.

Case report submissions are due no later than February 14, 2017. The AMP Publications and Communications Committee will review the submissions and reply by the end of April 2017. Thank you for your interest and support of AMP educational initiatives.
