Written assignment Topic: New frontiers in clinical technology
These are the instructions to use when writing your essay.
1. The length should be around 2,500 words. See https://www.thelancet.com/lancet/information-for-authors/formatting-guidelines
2. The first page should contain your name and the title of your essay.
3. Divide your essay into sections and title each section in bold. For an example visit https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/issue/current and go to Information for Authors. Their information sheet itself is a good example of section layout. Of course your essay will have one, not two columns per page.
4. At the beginning write a 100-150 word summary of your essay and your last section should be entitled “Conclusions”.
5. Include up to five references and they should be documented in a standard way. I suggest that you use Lancet style (be careful about the punctuation).
Reference to a paper:
Murray CJ, Lopez AD. Mortality by cause for eight regions of the world. Lancet 1997:349:1269-76.
Reference to a book:
Gombrich EH. The story of art (16Ed). Phaidon, London 2002:7-37.
The references should be listed in the order they are quoted in the text.
6. Must make reference to chapters of the book: Mitchell, D. & Haroun, L. (2011). Introduction to Health Care, 3rd Edition. Cengage Learning. ISBN-10: 1-4354-8755-9. ISBN-13: 978-1-4354-8755-0
