Core tip: Evidence-based medicine (EBM) is the gold standard in current clinical treatments and essential for advancement of medicine. EBM attempts to objectively evaluate the quality of clinical research by critically assessing techniques reported by researchers in their publications. Therefore, high-quality clinical case studies published in clinical journals, which anyone can read, are extremely important. Information technology revolution brought us benefits that readers can easily access such journals from home, on mobile devices, or even while traveling. It will also accelerate further progress in EBM. World Journal of Clinical Cases should be a leading journal based on EBM.
