AME Case Reports

Aims and Scope

AME Case Reports (ACR, AME Case Rep, Online ISSN: 2523-1995) is an open access, peer-reviewed online journal publishing original and educationally valuable case reports in all medical disciplines. ACR is indexed by PubMed/PMC, Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI). ACR received its impact factor of 0.6 for the year 2022. The journal aims to provide clinical information on common and rare cases for healthcare professionals, researchers and others.

The high quality of its content is assured by a rigorous review process and supervised by a strong editorial board. All submissions are reviewed by the Editor-in-Chief, Associate Editors or Editorial board members, as well as invited referees. The entire submission is managed through OJS system, an electronic system to provide an efficient way and ensure a rapid turn around of papers submitted for publication. The journal strongly endorses the CARE guidelines for case reports and requires authors to submit populated CARE checklists with submissions to improve transparency in reporting.
