Journals that Publish Case Reports

Choosing a Journal for Your Case Report

Before submitting your case report to a journal for publication, consider the following:

Is the journal trustworthy?

Some journals engage in questionable or "predatory" publishing practices. Choose trusted journals for publishing your work using a checklist such as:


Can I obtain patient consent?

Some case report journals require that you obtain signed consent for publication from the patient or guardian, even if your manuscript does not contain identifying information.


Do I want others to find my case report?

Choose a journal that is listed in a health sciences or interdisciplinary database.


Can I afford the author fee?

Many case report journals are open access and may charge authors a fee upon manuscript submission or acceptance. The FSU Open Access Fund provides FSU-affiliated authors with up to $1,500 in fund per year. To request funds, submit an Open Access Fund Proposal using the link below.
