SCOPE is your magazine and to ensure it is filled with interesting, informative and valuable material, it relies on submissions by members. The member survey undertaken last year highlighted a need for greater coverage of various IPEM areas in Scope. In response to this, each edition will now have a theme and there is now a schedule for the year ahead.

The September 2018 theme is ‘Clinical & Biomedical Engineering’, covering also physiological measurements, rehabilitation, medical equipment maintenance, design and manufacture. The submission deadline is 25 May.

The themes through to next year are:

• December 2018 issue: International / Developing Countries (submission deadline: 24 August)

• March 2019 issue: Medical Physics, covering diagnostic radiology, radiotherapy, MRI, nuclear medicine, ultrasound and optics (submission deadline: 23 November)

• June 2019 issue: Applied Academia & Clinical Computing (submission deadline: 22 February, 2019)

Member articles are welcome from all levels including trainees, junior, middle and senior staff. If you are interested in writing for Scope contact Editor-in-Chief Usman Lula. He will send you a pre-defined template and answer any queries you may have. Don’t forget that your submission will count towards CPD.
