New Open Access Case Reports Journal across all of Health Sciences – Open for submissions

CCR coverWiley are pleased to announce that Clinical Case Reports is now open for submissions. Through collaboration with Wiley’s extensive portfolio of journals, Clinical Case Reports will provide a place to publish and to read clinical case histories from every clinical discipline including Medicine, Nursing, Dentistry, and Veterinary Science. The new journal will be fully open access and articles will be free to read, download and share on Wiley Online Library and deposited in PubMed Central.

 Dr. Charles Young has been appointed Editor-in-Chief for Clinical Case Reports. Dr. Young, who is a practicing emergency physician at St Thomas’ Hospital in London, is Vice President for clinical solutions at Wiley, and is a former Editor-in-Chief of the BMJ Evidence Centre as well as a former Executive Editor of The Lancet.

 ”Clinical Case Reports’ vision is to directly improve global health outcomes by identifying and disseminating examples of best clinical practice,” said Dr. Young. “The journal will be different to other case report journals by publishing common as well as uncommon clinical scenarios with a particular focus on those reports which illustrate the clinical use of important guidelines and systematic reviews.”

 Dr. Young will be supported by a Strategic Advisory Board who will provide authoritative development advice for the journal as well as Associate Editors who are specialists in their fields to oversee peer-review of the material submitted to the journal.

“Clinical case reports are highly valuable to healthcare professionals” says Rachel Burley, VP and Director, Open Access. “This important journal will benefit doctors, nurses, dentists and vets looking for place to publish their case reports.  The open access model will enable those communities, as well as society at large, to access peer-reviewed case histories to advance knowledge and understanding and ultimately, improve health.”
