Call for papers: Canadian Medical Association Journal Holiday Reading
Every December CMAJ, Canada’s leading medical journal, publishes a Holiday Reading section featuring clever spoof research, humour, reflections, poetry and art related to the practice of medicine. We’ve been doing this since 1998 and it’s become a much anticipated annual treat for our readers.
