As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
COVID-19 and impact on peer review
JA Clinical Reports is now on PMC/PubMed
JA Clinical Reports has now been accepted and included in PubMedCentral/PubMed. Articles published since Volume 3 (2017) are now indexed in PubMed with full article texts made available on PMC.
Aims and scope
JA Clinical Reports is a companion journal to the Journal of Anesthesia (JA), the official journal of the Japanese Society of Anesthesiologists (JSA). This journal is an open access, peer-reviewed, online journal related to clinical anesthesia practices such as anesthesia management, pain management and intensive care.
Case reports are very important articles from the viewpoint of education and the cultivation of scientific thinking in the field of anesthesia. However, submissions of anesthesia research and clinical reports from Japan are notably decreasing in major anesthesia journals. Therefore, the JSA has decided to launch a new journal, JA Clinical Reports, to encourage JSA members, particularly junior Japanese anesthesiologists, to publish papers in English language.
Information for JSA members
Japan Society of Anesthesiologists covers the cost of Article processing charge (APC) for the papers submitted by the member of the society. To receive this benefit members must submit the "membership code" (also called "institutional reference code") during the process of manuscript submission.
Membership code can be found in the journal information section within member-only area of JSA homepage (https://nsas.anesth.or.jp/JSA_LOGIN.aspx), or from Membership Administrator team by email; firstname.lastname@example.org.
JA Clinical Reports is affiliated with the Japanese Society of Anesthesiologists.
