American Journal of Emergency Medicine
Publisher: W.B. Saunders Company
The scope of The American Journal of Emergency Medicine is as broad as the
definition of emergency medicine itself, encompassing all activities
concerned with acute medical care. AJEM invites the submission of original
research, reports, correspondence, and opinion relating to acute adult and
pediatric medicine and surgery and the related fields of trauma, toxicology,
critical care, resuscitation, emergency medical services, behavioral
emergencies, and environmental medicine.
Original contributions will be accepted on the basis of significance,
validity, and clarity. Authors will be expected to justify conclusions by
the data presented, maintain a lucid prose style, and describe methodology
in sufficient detail for readers to evaluate results accurately. AJEM, in
turn, is committed to a confidential, expeditious, and professional
editorial process. Reviews will be objective, rigorous, and responsible.
Articles published in AJEM are indexed and abstracted in Index Medicus,
Excerpta Medica, Current Contents/Clinical Medicine, ISI/BIOMED, and BIOSIS.
Covering all activities concerned with emergency medicine, it is the journal
to turn to for information to help increase the ability to understand,
recognize and treat emergency conditions.
Issues contain clinical articles, case reports, review articles, editorials,
international notes, book reviews and more. American Journal of Emergency
Medicine is recommended for purchase in the Brandon-Hill study, Selected
List of Books and Journals for the Small Medical Library.
