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.
BMJ Patient Consent Form
This BMJ consent form is used to document a patient’s consent to publication of images and/or information about them in BMJ publications
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.
