Background World Journal of Clinical Cases (WJCC, World J Clin Cases) is a high-quality, online, open-access, single-blind peer-reviewed journal that is published by the Baishideng Publishing Group. Accepting both solicited and unsolicited manuscripts, the WJCC mainly publishes high-quality clinical research articles to improve the academic influence of authors, help cultivate distinguished researchers in the field of clinical medicine, and promote the development of this field. The types of articles published in the WJCC include Editorial, Opinion Review, Frontier, Review, Minireview, Clinical Research, Systematic Review, Meta-analysis, Evidence-based Medicine, Field of Vision, Clinical Guidelines, Letter to the Editor, and Case Report.
Aim The primary aim of the WJCC is to provide scholars and readers from various fields of clinical medicine with a platform to publish high-quality clinical research articles and communicate their research findings online. In order to ensure the quality, timeliness, fairness, and transparency of manuscript publication, the WJCC has implemented a variety of measures as follows:
First, authors must prepare their articles according to the appropriate international publication recommendations, including the STROBE Statement, CONSORT 2010 Statement, PRISMA 2009 Checklist, and CARE Checklist – 2016: Information for writing a case report.
Second, articles published in the WJCC must undergo rigorous cross-international peer review, where peer reviewers and authors come from different countries and independent peer reviewers are chosen by the editorial office, not by authors, to ensure the fairness of peer review.
Third, designation of co-first authors or co-corresponding authors is not permitted.
Fourth, the WJCC accepts a manuscript based mainly on its novelty, innovativeness, data accuracy, picture reliability, clear language expression, and ethical requirements. Of note, peer reviewers will complete the peer review within 7 days, providing a comprehensive evaluation of the scientific and linguistic quality of the manuscript.
Fifth, BPG adopts a 7-day publishing management policy. This means that each step of the publishing process, including manuscript preview, peer review, manuscript revision by authors, final acceptance, language editing, and production and release, must be completed within 7 days.
Finally, the peer review report, author’s response to the peer review report, biostatistics review certificate, copyright license agreement, institutional ethics committee approval document, informed consent, conflict-of-interest statement, CrossCheck detection report, authors’ personal ORCID numbers, funding information, language editing certificate, and other relevant documents will be published online along with the article to ensure that the publishing process is open and transparent.
Scope The WJCC mainly publishes various clinical cases in the field of clinical medicine covering a wide range of topics including diagnostic, therapeutic, and preventive modalities, such as non-invasive and invasive procedures.
