BMJ Case Reports Institutional Membership

Mayo Clinic maintains an institutional membership to BMJ Case Reports.  This means that you can submit your case reports without paying the individual fellowship fee.  The BMJ group customer number, author guidelines, and other details are available on this page of the Mayo Clinic Libraries website. (Note: Mayo's membership covers the Fellowship fee. This is separate from the Open Access charge, which is optional and allows your article to be free for all readers.) BMJ Case Reports Instructions for Authors page has complete details.
