About Reports

Aims

Reports is an international, peer-reviewed, open access medical journal that publishes case reports and other related articles. Our aim is to improve the management of patients by compiling reports across all medical disciplines that are both practical and useful for clinicians, researchers, healthcare professionals, and other relevant care providers. Reports will publish novel information on the management of patients. All manuscripts will be examined by the Editor-in-Chief and editorial team, who will judge each submission on the basis of its originality, quality, and benefits to society.

Scope

Reports will publish case reports that cover all areas of medical sciences including surgery, internal medicine, and physical- and psychotherapy. Papers will be accepted on the basis of careful clinical observation, as well as adherence to technical and ethical standards. The following information will be particularly worthy of publication:

  • Novel findings during diagnosis and treatments of the patients
  • Drug discoveries and their side effects, and the introduction of new biological agents that may cause immune-mediated adverse effects
  • Application of instrumental medical sciences (e.g., diagnostic imaging, medical devices, interventional radiology, and ultrasonography) as well as molecular and serological diagnostic methods
  • Reports or data relevant to psychotherapy and physical and occupational therapy
  • Reports relating to forensic, medical–legal, disaster medicine and other health services
