Aims and scope
The International Journal of Emergency Medicine is a high-quality Open Access journal which aims to bring to light the various clinical advancements and research developments attained over the world, thus helping the specialty forge ahead. It is directed towards physicians and medical personnel undergoing training or working within the field of Emergency Medicine. Disciplines covered include interesting clinical cases, the latest evidence-based practice and research developments in Emergency Medicine, including emergency pediatrics. The International Journal of Emergency Medicine focuses on the practice of Emergency Medicine in a variety of settings, from urban emergency departments and rural clinics in the developing world, to humanitarian and disaster situations. It aims to shed light on international advances in practice, education and research, with a single common goal: to reduce suffering and promote excellence in patient care worldwide.
The International Journal of Emergency Medicine is seeking papers on the use of AI and digital health to transform emergency medicine. AI algorithms and chatbots could help with patient triage, decision support, and monitoring. AI-powered communication tools can assist patients in navigating emergency care and post-discharge processes. However, there are also risks, including the introduction of bias, problems with replicability, and the need for explainability. Open to submissions until 15 February 2024.
We warmly welcome submissions to our Guest Edited Collection, Gamification in Emergency Medicine Education, Guest Edited by Shayne Gue. Educational gamification is a growing field within both undergraduate and graduate medical education settings to motivate learners and provide an interactive, experiential, and social learning environment. Through this collection, we seek to share experiences from around the world to develop best practices in educational gamification within emergency medicine. Open to submissions until 1 November 2023.
