Journal of Geriatric Emergency Medicine issues call for papers

Heather Wojtarowicz

The co-editors-in-chief of the Journal of Geriatric Emergency Medicine (JGEM) have issued a call for original research manuscripts and clinical case reports for consideration in the scholarly journal.

Original research papers should relate to emergency care of older adults within the disciplines of emergency medicine, ethics, geriatrics, medical specialties, health and medical administration, and medicine and health sciences.

Authors are invited to submit their original research/clinical investigation and articles using one of the following formats:

  • Quality Improvement, Models of Care, or Program Dissemination
  • Education and Training
  • Ethics
  • Health Policy and Economics
  • Global GEM

Prior to submission, authors must review JGEM’s Author Guidelines for specific formatting requirements, as well as other accepted submission categories. All submitted articles will be reviewed on a blind review basis by two peer reviewers. The final decision regarding acceptance/revision/rejection will be based on the reviews received from the reviewers and at the sole discretion of the co-editors-in-chief.

All manuscripts must be submitted through JGEM’s online manuscript platform, BePress.
