What are our Associate Editors so excited about? Well, we are pleased to announce that Journal of Medical Case Reports has now opened its doors to accepting case reports with comments from the patient in question. The ‘Patient’s perspective feature is a simple way to add another dimension to a case report. We think inviting the patient to comment on their condition, course of treatment or even providing some background on their daily activities will add an extra layer of detail to the case report.

‘Patient’s perspectives’ are of course also welcome in JMCR’s new sister publication, Cases Journal, edited by Richard Smith.

By including patient-written narratives, we aim to capture information about each patient’s case that would otherwise be lost.

If you would like to be among the first to publish a case report with your patient then please follow our instructions and submit online. All accepted case reports will be indexed in PubMed Central.
