Instructions for Authors
The Canadian Journal of Rural Medicine (CJRM) is a quarterly peer-reviewed journal available in print form and on the internet. It is the first rural medical journal in the world indexed in Index Medicus, as well as MEDLINE/PubMed databases.CJRM seeks to promote research into rural health issues, promote rural and remote communities' health, support and inform rural practitioners, provide a forum for debate and discussion of rural medicine, provide practical clinical information to rural practitioners, and influence rural health policy by publishing articles that inform decision-makers.
For all work, its worth repeating, our content needs to be authentically rural.
Material in the following categories will be considered for publication. Note that only Origional Aticles require an abstract.
Original articles: research studies in rural medicine (3500 words or less) with a formal abstract.
History of the CJRM
Canadian Medical Association, the executive and membership of the Society of Rural Physicians of Canada, and the Rural and Remote Area Medicine Conferences' directors. Planning began in 1994, and a publishing agreement was concluded with the CMA in November 1995. The Call-For-Papers was published in CMAJ in December 1995, and the first issue appeared on June 1, 1996. Our Associate Editor, Suzanne Kingsmill, is a professional writer and editor, and our editorial board includes individuals with wide-ranging research experience. Although this combined experience is broad, the details of starting up a new journal have been many, and the learning curve steep.CJRM scores several "firsts." It is the first Canadian journal to focus exclusively on rural medicine. It is the first in Canada to be produced "from the field" by rural physicians themselves, and be distributed nationally. It is innovative in publishing simultaneously in print and on the internet, and it attempts something unusual in medical publishing - to combine a scholarly medical journal with non-medical general interest material.
Images and Illustrations
Illustrations should be in JPG, EPS, TIFF or GIF formats produced by the camera at a minimum resolution of 300 dpi (typically a 2 megapixel or better camera for 10x15 cm image). Do not correct colour or contrasts as our printer will do that. Do not include text or captions in the image. If you need to crop the picture, ensure that you save with the highest quality (lowest compression). Do not scan art or reduce the photos' resolution unless you indicate in the cover letter that you have done so and will also be forwarding high-resolution copies on either CD or as camera-ready art.
Written permission must be provided for the reproduction of previously published material, for illustrations that identify human subjects, and from any person mentioned in the Acknowledgements or cited as the source of a Personal Communication.
