The European Journal of Case Reports in Internal Medicine – The First Two Years

  • John Kellett Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Center, Thunder Bay, Ontario

Abstract

The European Journal of Case Reports in Internal Medicine (EJCRIM) is just over two years old. To date 400 reports have been submitted and just under half have been accepted for publication. In order to keep costs down our initial policy was to charge a small fee for all submissions, and a further small publication fee for papers that were accepted. However, we have now abolished the submission charge and replaced it with a single, slightly increased, publication charge for all accepted papers.
