Pediatrics in Review’s Index of Suspicion Section – Reading, Writing, and Reviewing
Philip R.Fischer, MD, FAAP, Associate Editor, Index of Suspicion, Pediatrics in Review
You read, you respond, and the editorial team of Pediatrics in Review listens to your input! You wanted all Index of Suspicion cases in print, and, starting
with the July 2018 issue of the journal, we began providing that again. You thought
that four cases per month was a good number, and we have shifted back to that monthly
total of published cases as of July 2018, too. We value your input and look forward
to more of it!
You write. Thanks for all the great case report submissions to the Index of Suspicion
section of Pediatrics in Review. While we are unable to accept all cases that are submitted, we will be publishing
at least 48 cases each year and look forward to receiving more good submissions. At
the same time, please be careful about plagiarizing. We still get cases that have
already been published elsewhere and cases that include sentences taken from other
published articles. Our website is clear about our plagiarism policies. By plagiarizing,
you put your professional future in peril.
Do you want to review submitted articles? Senior trainees, faculty members, and practicing
physicians - you can let me know if you would like to review submitted case reports.
Feel free to drop me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with a brief “biosketch” and tell me what topics specially interest you.
Thanks for reading, writing, and reviewing. Some people consider Index of Suspicion
to be their favorite part of Pediatrics in Review, the world’s most widely read pediatric journal. It is a pleasure to participate
together with you in upgrading the value of Index of Suspicion.
