Short Reports

A short report is evaluated by ASRT staff (i.e., no peer review) and addresses a particular topic in a less formal format. Short reports can include anything from opinion pieces to a technique used in a particular hospital.

Original Research

A peer-reviewed article that explores an area of interest through systematic investigation to expand knowledge within a particular field. This type typically involves surveys, pilot studies, or other methods to gather new information assessed through in-depth statistical analysis.

Literature Review
