Bloodlines contains articles covering a wide range of topics and disciplines within transfusion science.  The articles are written by the Communications Committee and by our contributors from across the world. We would love you to contribute too!

Simply email bbts@bbts.org.uk with your idea or completed article and our team will pass it over to the Bloodlines Editor for consideration. 

All articles published need to be linked to transfusion medicine in some way. 


The style and tone of your article should be scholarly and critical whilst avoiding being too dry and theoretical. Articles should ideally be approximately 500 - 1,000 words in length. When possible, they should include one or more high quality images relevant to the topic with copyright permission.
