Although many journals prefer not to publish case reports, BMJ Case Reports invite them, as an important source of clinically important information, particularly concerning:
- differential diagnosis,
- decision making, management, and
- clinical guidelines.
Readers are also able to leave comments on the reports.
BMJ Case Reports’ business model is based on “Fellowships,” where Fellows have access to all content as well as the ability to submit cases at no charge. The UI Libraries has an Institutional Fellowship that gives all UI affiliates the ability to submit cases as well as access the journal. If you would like to submit a case report, please contact Hardin Library reference staff or your liaison for the Institutional Fellowship number you will need.
The Fellowship model does not make the article freely available through open access. If you would like your case to be open access, there is another fee for that which is not covered by the library’s Institutional Fellowship. However, the content of BMJ Case Reports is included in PubMed Central after a two-year embargo (delay).
