Movember Canada request for applications

Issue: BCMJ, vol. 55, No. 5, June 2013, Page 235 News

Movember Canada is requesting applications for mental health interventions in the priority areas of de-stigmatization, awareness, prevention, education, or early recognition/interventions. Movember Canada is offering $12 million in funding for these areas, the first and largest investment made to date through Movember dollars in the areas of mental health, with additional requests for applications to be announced in the coming months.

Movember Canada invites applications from organizations in Canada seeking funding for projects with the goals of:

•    Reducing the stigma of men suffering from a mental health condition across all stages of life (childhood and adolescence, as well as young, mid, and later adulthood) to enable them to step forward to seek the help and care of health care professionals.
•    Raising awareness and knowledge of men’s mental health concerns through education in schools, colleges, communities, and workplaces.
•    Defining and developing interventions (social, communication, education, and advocacy), which lead to the prevention of mental illness or enable early recognition and treatment among men and their loved ones.

The deadline for applications is 31 July. All final applications are subject to peer review, with the peer review panel comprising members with na­tional and international expertise in mental health.

Above is the information needed to cite this article in your paper or presentation. The International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) recommends the following citation style, which is the now nearly universally accepted citation style for scientific papers:
Halpern SD, Ubel PA, Caplan AL, Marion DW, Palmer AM, Schiding JK, et al. Solid-organ transplantation in HIV-infected patients. N Engl J Med. 2002;347:284-7.

About the ICMJE and citation styles

The ICMJE is small group of editors of general medical journals who first met informally in Vancouver, British Columbia, in 1978 to establish guidelines for the format of manuscripts submitted to their journals. The group became known as the Vancouver Group. Its requirements for manuscripts, including formats for bibliographic references developed by the U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM), were first published in 1979. The Vancouver Group expanded and evolved into the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE), which meets annually. The ICMJE created the Recommendations for the Conduct, Reporting, Editing, and Publication of Scholarly Work in Medical Journals to help authors and editors create and distribute accurate, clear, easily accessible reports of biomedical studies.

An alternate version of ICMJE style is to additionally list the month an issue number, but since most journals use continuous pagination, the shorter form provides sufficient information to locate the reference. The NLM now lists all authors.

BCMJ standard citation style is a slight modification of the ICMJE/NLM style, as follows:

  • Only the first three authors are listed, followed by "et al."
  • There is no period after the journal name.
  • Page numbers are not abbreviated.
