Indexing

Published articles are fully referenced and linked to a wide variety of discoverability services.  Endocrinology, Diabetes & Metabolism Case Reports is indexed in PubMed, PubMed Central, Sherpa/ROMEO, EMBASE, Emerging Sources Citation Index and the Directory of Open Access Journals.  We anticipate future indexing by Medline, which will be applied to all published articles retrospectively.

Research journal editorial policies usually restrict all but a few (if any) case reports being published so as not to waste valuable space or stunt impact factor growth. As case reports are not highly cited (despite being widely read), we do not expect this publication to be considered for an impact factor by Thomson Reuters. Rather, Endocrinology, Diabetes & Metabolism Case Reports will provide a welcome publishing outlet for authors’ case reports, and will not be restricting the number of high-quality case reports published.


Ethical policy

Endocrinology, Diabetes & Metabolism Case Reports is committed to integrity in research. In order to ensure that the publication’s contribution to the scientific record is reliable and meets the ethical standards expected by the global scientific community, we have developed a code of ethics to support editors, authors and peer reviewers in understanding the standards of behaviour they should follow in carrying out their roles in the publishing process.
