Call for Papers

The Lancet is planning a special issue, to coincide with the conference, which will include the very best clinical research on HIV/AIDS as well as review and opinion articles that highlight the scientific and policy issues that affect the HIV/AIDS community. Lancet is issuing a call for papers with a submission deadline of May 30, 2006. The Lancet is interested in publishing research that will be presented at the conference, but will also consider other HIV/AIDS papers for the special issue. Papers should be submitted online and the covering letter should mention that the submission is in response to this call for papers.”
