Research

Case Reports

BMJ Case Reports is an award winning journal that delivers a focused, peer-reviewed, valuable collection of cases in all disciplines so that healthcare professionals, researchers and others can easily find clinically important information on common and rare conditions. This is the largest single collection of case reports online with more than 9000 articles from over 70 countries.

The Library has an institutional subscription to the BMJ Case Reports that allows staff from FSH, RPH, Armadale, Rockingham, Bentley and Rockingham Hospitals to publish free of charge.

Publishing  in BMJ Case Reports will help you to:

  • Gain international recognition
  • Share your clinical experiences
  • Ease into the publishing pathway - especially useful for junior doctors
  • Contribute to a growing repository of case reports

How to publish as an institutional fellow

First - find your case and start writing!

Connect from the Library's link to the BMJ Case Reports then follow the instructions in the User Guide for EMHS and SMHS Staff.

Be sure to cite your institution as South Metropolitan Health Service (Fiona Stanley Hospital) OR South Metropolitan Health Services (Royal Perth Hospital) etc.  I know this does not marry up with our HSP boundaries but we are a joint Library service and our subscription is technically contracted with SMHS,.  If you put EMHS your submission will be rejected as BMJ will not recognise the affiliation.

In order to submit your paper you will need the Institutional Fellowship membership number found in the User Guide.

Good luck!
