Clinical Case Reports is different to other case report journals. Our aim is to directly improve global health outcomes and share clinical knowledge using case reports to convey important best practice messages. We welcome case reports, clinical images, and procedural videos from all areas of Medicine, Nursing, Dentistry, and Veterinary Science.
Clinical Case Reports aims to publish cases which illustrate the use of important systematic reviews. Clinical Case Reports also has a close relationship with the Cochrane Collaboration and case report submissions which relate to Cochrane systematic reviews are a priority for the Journal. If your submission has an important clinical message we would like to read it!
Why are we interested in common as well as uncommon clinical scenarios? Our view is that by publishing important common clinical scenarios managed according to agreed best practice principles we will help inform a broader clinical audience than the more esoteric reports.
Reasons to publish with Clinical Case Reports:
• High impact – your case can improve health outcomes
• High standard, rigorous peer review
• Rapid publication
• Open Access – reports are published under a Creative Commons license and authors are the copyright holder
• Wide dissemination - articles are published on Wiley Online Library and the journal has been accepted by PubMed Central
''I am an avid reader of your journal and am impressed by the quality of cases and other interesting articles that are featured in it''

Supported by leading journals and societies
Clinical Case Reports is very fortunate to be supported by many other journals published by Wiley, including a number of society-owned journals. These journals participate in the Manuscript Transfer Program by referring case reports and offering authors the option to have their paper, with any peer review reports, automatically transferred to Clinical Case Reports. A number of journals which don’t publish case reports also support Clinical Case Reports by directing authors to the journal in their author guidelines.
