Vanderbilt’s Agreements Supporting Open Access Publishing
As the scholarly publishing landscape has grown more complex with the advent of new publishing models, the Jean & Alexander Heard Libraries has negotiated transformative (read-and-publish) agreements with several publishers to better support faculty, staf
BMJ Case Reports, a journal published by BMJ, publishes real world case reports on common and rare conditions with a special emphasis on differential diagnosis, decision making, management, clinical guidelines, and pathology.
Vanderbilt's agreement waives the publication fee but not the open access fee of 475 GBP. Authors are responsible for the open access fee.
Publishers use a variety of methods and tools to confirm eligibility. Whenever possible, we have identified eligible affiliated groups that might appear in the publisher's list (e.g. Peabody or Vanderbilt University Medical Center); however, to ensure that an author is recognized, it is best to select Vanderbilt University as the affiliation and use a Vanderbilt email address at the point of submission/acceptance. It is also recommended to include one's ORCID iD.
BMJ Case Reports uses institutional fellowship codes.
The corresponding author will need to contact the Eskind Biomedical Library for the institution's fellowship code. Please submit your request here.
