Where to get your case reports published

Writing up case reports is often an entry into writing academic papers for many junior doctors, and the number of options for submitting your case reports is on the rise. Dr Katherine G. Akers writes in the latest edition of the Journal of the Medical Library Association (JMLA) on the rise in journals that are solely for publishing case reports.

This article contains a really useful grid of which journals are available, and whether or not they are indexed, or follow non-traditional methods of peer review etc.

UHL Libraries and Information Services also hold a fellowship number for BMJ Case Reports, which is indexed in Pubmed/MEDLINE, and d0es not follow questionable, “predatory” publishing practices. Please contact the library directly for our fellowship number, which will allow you to submit for publication without paying a fee. This is open to UHL staff only.
