I agree with you.  There have been many interesting conversations on the
Histonet that would make very good articles.  There are  people involved
with the  BOR that are looking for every opportunity to get histotechs
involved in writing articles.

I was just recently asked to respond to a question on expiration dating of
bulk chemicals.  It is appearing in the April edition of Laboratory
Medicine.  What a thrill to see your name in an article!

Presently, I am working on an article for Microscopy Today on the use of
molecular sieves. for keeping solvents dry.

All this is just from answering questions on the Histonet.  All people have
to do is put their pens where their mouth is.  We need the shared knowledge
on paper.

My 2 cents worth on why there aren't more articles........ I'd bet that
of us are submitting any!!  And do we want to read histo articles written
non-hist people??  Probably not...... lets start submitting stuff!!!  (just
my opinion)

>Debra brings up a very good point - why doesn't ASCP have more continuing
ed, articles and support for our profession?  I am continually disappointed
when I read Laboratory Medicine and see very little about our field.  We
our dues and get little in return (except our yearly sticker that says we
are members.)  Almost seems like taxation without representation......
