Guidelines for contributors
"Post Peak Medicine" is a book which is being
written by and for healthcare professionals. At
present it exists as this website, but when completed it will
be compiled into a downloadable e-book. The intention
behind the book is that it will help practitioners to make the
transition to post-peak practices during what may be turbulent
I have written Part 1: Framework and
Background but I am looking for specialists in their field to
write individual chapters in Part 2: Specialties.
Your contribution, should you decide to
make it, will be valuable both to your professional colleagues
and the public. Here are some suggested guidelines
for contributors which I hope you will find
You must have a recognised qualification
within your healthcare specialty.
When the book is completed and published, all contributions
must be attributable to a named author(s).
Each chapter need only be a few pages long, and should be
about the challenges you foresee in adapting to post peak
practice and how those challenges might be overcome. Don't try
to write a detailed textbook about your specialty, but where
detail is needed, please provide links or references to
sources of information you consider helpful. If you find
it difficult to imagine what your specialty will be like
post-peak, it may be helpful to put it in a historical
context: for example, what methods did your specialty use
fifty or a hundred years ago?
Pictures and illustrations are welcome, but please ensure
that you hold the copyright, or that you have obtained
permission to use them, or that they are copyright-free.
This book will not be released to the public until all
contributors agree that it is time for it to be released. This
may be either when it is completed, or when the public
attitude towards peak oil and related issues has changed to
the extent that it is possible for serious discussion about
them to take place in mainstream circles.

book. For further information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
