Oxford University Press acquires joint ownership of Journal of Surgical Case Reports

Oxford University Press (OUP) has just announced a major new acquisition that will see the publisher take joint ownership of the Journal of Surgical Case Reports (JSCR).

Editor Julien Al Shakarchi said, "The move to Oxford University Press marks a new exciting chapter for the Journal of Surgical Case Reports. With its long tradition of excellence and innovative web delivery, OUP was the natural partner for the journal. The editorial team looks forward to this new exciting partnership and to seeing the title flourish into the premier case report journal."

OUP is to take a 50 per cent share in the title from January 2013 in a new long-term collaboration which will continue to strengthen OUP's Medicine collection and its Open Access programme.

Michael Brown, Editorial Director of Medicine Journals, at OUP said, "There has been a significant development in Open Access publishing over the last five years, and the growth of case report journals is a distinct part of this. The Journal of Surgical Case Reports shares OUP's aims for publishing the highest-quality content and disseminating that content as widely as possible. Case reports are a cornerstone of surgical practice, and this journal not only provides readers with an opportunity to learn through these reports, but also for quality case reports to be published and enhance the medical literature."

Journal of Surgical Case Reports is an open access, peer-reviewed online journal that will consider any original case report that expands the field of surgery. The journal aims to publish reports showing one of the following:

  • Unexpected or unusual presentations of a disease
  • Description of a rare surgical condition
  • An unexpected event in the management of a patient
  • Description of a new surgical procedure
  • Innovation in surgery

The first issue of the Journal of Surgical Case Reports will be published by OUP from January 2013. Visit the website for more information, submission guidelines, and to sign up to receive tables of contents by email:
