Title of the Article

Chapter:
Manuscript Preparation
Author(s):

Cheryl Iverson

The shortened version of the title should be kept brief but should emphasize the main point of the article (see the options suggested in the second example below, based on the desired emphasis), not just repeat the first few words of the title. Different journals have different limits (eg, approximately 45 characters and spaces in JAMA). No punctuation follows the running foot/header.Careful use of abbreviations may help meet space limitations.In some instances the editorial department, eg, Editorials, Commentary, Letters, rather than the article’s title, will constitute the running head/foot.
