SAGE has begun a partnership with the American Federation for Medical Research (AFMR) to publish Journal of Investigative Medicine High Impact Case Reports, a new, rigorously peer-reviewed open access journal dedicated to publishing high quality case reports. SAGE will begin publication of the journal in 2013.
AFMR is an international, multi-disciplinary association that aims to further research to improve medical care and to enhance the career development of its members. This new journal will provide an outlet for interns, residents, fellows, and early-career faculty to demonstrate important new scholarly activity.
“Rigorous descriptions of informative clinical observations are critical to the advancement of medical science. This new journal will provide an outstanding venue for the publication of important clinical cases,” said Dr. Michael McPhaul, editor of the journal.
Articles in Journal of Investigative Medicine High Impact Case Reports will be published online continuously and on a monthly basis. The journal will be published based on an open access, author-pays model and will be open and available to the public without a subscription. Members of AFMR will be able to publish in the journal at a reduced author fee.
“The Journal of Investigative Medicine High Impact Case Reports will provide an important avenue through which researchers can advance biomedical research for the benefit of both scholarship and medicine,” said Bob Howard, SAGE Executive Director of Journals. “We are happy to welcome the journal and the American Federation of Medical Research to the SAGE family.”
