Publish your Unusual Case in BMJ Case Reports

Are you interested in publishing, but don’t know how or where to start? Consider BMJ Case Reports as your starting point.

The Health Sciences Library has a subscription to BMJ Case Reports for 2018, which includes a waiver of the individual membership fee of $250/year normally required to publish cases in it. This journal is peer reviewed, indexed in MEDLINE, and has a 42% acceptance rate. Published cases are available to subscribers immediately upon publication and are free to the world after 2 years, giving your work greater visibility.

If you check all the boxes on this checklist, you can submit any of these types of cases:

  • Reminder of important clinical lesson
  • Findings that shed new light on the possible pathogenesis of a disease or an adverse effect
  • Learning from errors
  • Unusual presentation of more common disease/injury
  • Myth exploded
  • Rare disease
  • New disease
  • Novel diagnostic procedure
  • Novel treatment (new drug/intervention; established drug/procedure in new situation)
  • Unusual association of diseases/symptoms
  • Unexpected outcome (positive or negative) including adverse drug reactions
  • For Global Health case reports, use this checklist
  • For “Images In” case reports, use this checklist

We created some instructions to give you an idea of the submission process. Interested in publishing a case report? Contact asklibrary@health.missouri.edu so we can help you get started.

Sharing Days Poster Help

Do you have a project that has shown significant process in the past year? If so, why not share your poster during the 5th Annual Sharing Days May 1-3 2018.

The Powerpoint for Posters guide provides resources for design tips, templates, MU Logos and Colors, infographics, and much more. Of course, there are other ways to create posters, by powerpoint is commonly used.

Of course, apart from the layout of your poster, it is important to consider the information that goes on your poster. Does your poster provide enough information? Does it have too much? Be sure to pay special attention to the Evaluating Your Poster tab, which provides a poster evaluation checklist, along with evaluation surveys and rubrics to help you determine if your poster has a focus.  You do want your poster to be visually appealing, but you also want your poster to be informative.

When you have the finished product, the Center for Health Care Quality (CHCQ) will print your poster for free on non-laminated paper. Be sure to check that option when you submit the poster in the QI Tracker. Remember, the deadline to submit your poster is April 15th, either through the QI Tracker or through SharePoint

Downloading and Printing Ebooks

Through the library, you can access many ebooks, some of which allow downloading and printing. Those ebooks that do allow for printing and downloading sometimes come with restrictions which vary from publisher to publisher regarding the amount of pages that can be printed or saved.

We ask that you be aware of these restrictions because excessive printing and/or downloading can cause the publisher to turn off ebook access for everyone. Here are the guidelines for some ebook websites:

  • AccessMedicine – May download individual sections within a chapter.
  • ClinicalKey – You must sign up for a free account in order to download individual chapters.
  • ProQuest – print policy;download instructions
  • EBSCOhost – print policydownload instructions
  • R2 Digital Library – While you are not allowed to download eBooks from R2, you can print or email sections using the “Tools” icon across the top navigation bar. If more then 60 print or email requests or 20% of the books pages are downloaded/printed over a 24 hour period, then the printing and emailing functions will be turned off.
  • Safari Books – You can only download and print individual pages.
