From January 2015 the Canadian Journal of Emergency Medicine (CJEM) will join the Cambridge Journals list.
CJEM is a scholarly, peer-reviewed journal, produced specifically for emergency medicine care providers in rural, urban, community, and academic settings. The journal focuses on emergency medicine content relevant to clinical practice, emergency medical services, research, medical education, administration, and continuing professional development and knowledge exchange.
A key development will be the move to an online-only format, and CJEM’s readers and authors will benefit from the additional features available on Cambridge’s electronic platform, Cambridge Journals Online. These include increased usability via mobile and web-optimized sites and state-of-the-art functionality. CJEM will be available in a wide range of different article formats for devices including pdf, html, Kindle, and epub to enhance and optimise article usage. These developments will enhance CJEM’s discoverability, whilst CJEM will continue to adhere to the same high level of peer review and editorial excellence.
Speaking about the decision to partner with Cambridge University Press, Vera Klein, Executive Director, Canadian Association of Emergency Physicians, said “CAEP is very excited to be partnering with Cambridge University Press. It will help take CJEM to new heights as a completely digital publication, but it will also allow the journal to continue its focus on Canadian emergency medicine.”
Katy Christomanou, Publishing Director for STM Journals, Cambridge University Press, commented, “There is a strong fit between the CAEP’s aims and our strength in emergency medicine within both our books and journals programmes. Our focus will be on expanding the journal’s reach and impact across the community, realising the journal’s potential to attract a worldwide audience.”
