Cases Journal is an open access, peer-reviewed online journal that publishes
case reports from any area of medicine. The journal will publish any report
that is understandable, ethical, authentic, and includes all information
essential to its interpretation.
All case reports published in the journal will be aggregated into a
database, which will allow users to search for case reports by disease,
drug, patient demographics and more, to find cases of most relevance to
their clinical practice or research interests.
We believe that aggregating the articles in a database in this way makes
every case important - hence we welcome submission of 'everyday' cases as
well as rare disorders or unusual events. Case reports with negative
outcomes are as welcome as those with positive outcomes. The journal aims to
publish thousands of case reports - many more than any other medical
Cases Journal accepts submission of case reports from any physician. Authors
are encouraged to invite the patient to contribute to the case report - each
article can include an optional 'Patient's perspective¹ section, where the
patient describes their experience of the disorder and treatment.
Cases Journal is a sister publication to Journal of Medical Case Reports.
JMCR is a more selective journal, publishing only those case reports that
are the first of their kind. Case reports published in JMCR will be
aggregated into the same database as those from Cases Journal.
Manuscripts should be submitted electronically to Cases Journal using the
online submission system.
