Cholesterol and Triglycerides
LOW DENSITY LIPOPROTEIN CHOLESTEROL
- Separate paragraphs by a space. Do not indent.
- Insert reference numbers into the text in parentheses (1, 2) and list references at the end of the chapter numerically in order of appearance. Use any number of references you wish. The style for references is that used in JCEM.
- We encourage you to cite other Endotext chapters whenever appropriate. Endotext chapters are indexed on PubMed so they are easy to reference using reference managing systems such as EndNote, and this will increase the visibility of our website.
- If appropriate you can state “additional information can be found in the chapter entitled “_____” in the ____ section of Endotext (reference #). Do not use chapter numbers as this can change as we add and subtract chapters
- Most importantly, please use sections to divide chapters as it makes it easier for readers to rapidly find information
- Line Spacing- this should be 1.15. There should be a space between all new paragraphs
Tables and Figures
- We would recommend very liberal use of Tables and Figures since these can provide quick and effective information for practicing physicians who may not have time to read a large text.
- Please insert tables and figures directly in the text where you want them to appear. We recommend having an average of one table or figure for each 2-3,000 words.
- Create Tables using the MS Word table function. Please list the Table title in the Table in bold type. (see example below)
- Use of colored figures is strongly encouraged! Please insert figures directly in the text, and use “JPEG”, GIF, or PNG format. Please do not include the figure title, number, or legend within the figure. Figure legends should be below the figure and in bold
- As usual, we will need written permission to re-use any figure published elsewhere. Since many journals charge for permission to re-use a figure, and we are unable to provide support for this expense, it is often preferable to modify an illustration so that it is not the same as the original, or to produce a new figure.

- In an effort to convey the chronic nature of many of the diseases referred to in this textbook, where applicable, please refer to patients “with acromegaly,” “with diabetes,” “with hypertension,” or “who are obese,” rather than “acromegalics”, “diabetics,” “hypertensives,” or “obese patients.”
- DOSAGES AND SPECIFIC TREATMENTS - Please check all references to dosages and specific treatments very carefully.
- COPYRIGHT The copyright is owned by MDText.com, INC. For newly written chapters, the authors will transfer copyright to the chapters to MDText.com, INC.
- Please be sure to add your Endotext publication to your own CV, and to cite it in your lectures and publications. As noted, chapters are indexed on PubMed and therefore are very easy to cite.
