Scott Memorial Library wants to make sure that Jeffersonians are aware that the University has an institutional membership to BMJ Case Reports. This means that all Jefferson students, faculty and staff may submit as many case reports as they like to this journal for free, as well as access and reuse all of the published material. If you are interested in this opportunity, please e-mail AskALibrarian@jefferson.edu for more details.
Another venue for student publishing is to choose a student-run or locally produced journal. A few to consider:
· Cooper Rowan Medical Journal (CRMJ) – For all medical students, allied healthcare students, and residents/fellows (all years) in training.
· Evanescent – A literary journal published by the Jefferson Center for Injury Research and Prevention and dedicated to stories of injury and all its victims. Submissions welcome from all Jeffersonians.
· Inside Out – An art and literary journal for Jefferson students.
· The Medicine Forum – Publishes case reports and more from Jefferson Internal Medicine Residents.
Finally, the Library has a guide designed to help students (also faculty and staff) make determinations about what journal to publish with. This guide lists various tools to help authors find the best journals for their articles, and it also provides tips about evaluating the quality of a journal before submitting work to it.
