EJCRIM is an online free access journal and it was launched at EFIM Prague Congress (2-5 October 2013).
The aim of the journal is to provide a forum to Internal Medicine Doctors for the description of interesting cases, or a series or cluster of cases.
The journal would also consider brief reasoned reports (no more than 700 words) of issues relevant to the practice of Internal Medicine, as well as Abstracts submitted to scientific meetings of European societies of Internal Medicine.
For more information on the journal, please visit EJCRIM official website: www.ejcrim.com
