Radiology Case Reports: a new peer-reviewed, open-access journal specializing in case reports

Michael L. Richardson, Felix S. Chew

Abstract


Although case reports have always had a place at the foundation of medical knowledge, established radiology journals have increasingly focused their efforts on major research studies. This de-emphasis of case reports has resulted in a dearth of opportunities to publish them. Case reports continue to mark the frontiers of what we know as physicians, and have long provided an attainable way for fledging authors to learn the craft of scientific writing. For these reasons and others, we have established Radiology Case Reports (RCR), a peer-reviewed journal specializing in case reports, and have gathered a distinguished Editorial Board to assist us. RCR offers open access (free of subscription fees or access charges) on the internet to the full text of its articles as soon as they are published. We invite interested persons to join us in helping this venerable but valuable form of medical journalism not only survive, but flourish.
