International Journal of Emergency Medicine

ISSN: 1865-1372 (Print) 1865-1380 (Online)


International Journal of Emergency Medicine is a peer-reviewed open access journal published under the brand SpringerOpen. It is the only international, peer-reviewed, open access journal for emergency medicine.

Many countries around the world are recognizing this relatively new specialty and increasing their focus on training and research. However, current journals concentrate mainly on the US, UK, and Australia; there are no adequate journals which address the needs of the global community. The International Journal of Emergency Medicine will shed light on how the specialty is being practiced in various countries, which will not only further education, but also stimulate evidence-based improvement in practice and further research.

International Journal of Emergency Medicine is directed towards physicians and medical personnel undergoing training or working within the field of emergency medicine. It focuses on the practice of emergency medicine in a variety of settings, from urban emergency departments to rural clinics, including humanitarian and disaster situations. The content is diverse and features case reports with discussion on evidence-based practice, clinical images with spot diagnosis, systematic reviews, brief research reports, quality improvement and innovations.

IJEM is an open access journal, which provides free access to its articles to anyone, anywhere, at any time, without the need for a subscription.
