BMJ Case Reports

Through an institutional fellowship, Drexel-affiliated authors will be able to submit as many case reports as they'd like without paying for an individual fellowship. When submitting a case report, you must use your Drexel email address to be eligible for submission. This, however, does not waive fees for publishing open access with BMJ Case Reports. More information can be found on the BMJ Case Reports Fellowship information page.
