CALL FOR ARTICLES AND ABSTRACTS for Annual General Meeting 2018(Wales) FOR NDA UK JOURNAL / SCIENTIFIC SESSION 2018

NDA UK Journal has published annually from the material provided by doctors, their family members and friends in the UK and abroad. Both medical and non-medical articles are welcome. Medical articles could be a review, original on research/audit or an interesting case report. They should be referenced in Vancouver style. Abstracts of presentation at the annual scientific meeting will also be published. 

Non-medical articles should be interesting, informative, impartial, non-political and if possible, linked to Nepal and Nepalese cultural heritage. Short stories, poems, travel experiences, recipes, anecdotes, etc. are considered for inclusion in the journal.

There is also space for readers' feedback in the form of letters to the editor.

This year there will be an artwork competition for the journal. Any age group please send in the artwork (drawing or photo) depicting some aspect of Nepal. The winning entry will be published on the back page.
