European Heart Journal Case Reports

Remember, the higher the impact factor is more difficult it is to publish in that journal. Although case reports are no match to original research articles, publishing a case report is a good start, especially for radiology residents.

The list is compiled from the article by Simkus P et.al. referenced below. The list does have some discrepancies which have been corrected, for eg. Radiology and AJR DO NOT accept case reports as stated by the authors in the sheet. A few journals that I feel are not relevant to radiologists have also been removed, for eg. the International Journal of Hyperthermia (I was surprised there exists such a journal!).

I have also provided hyperlinks to the respective author instruction page for these journals. Journal guidelines can change from time to time so make sure you check these links to check the latest guidelines.

You can also access the original list of journals with other details using this link: http://tiny.cc/radjournals or using the article link below. Another exhaustive list of journals accepting case reports is available here: How to choose the best journal for your case report

If you have any other suggestions, please let us know in the comments and we shall include them in the list.
