The Health Sciences Library has a subscription to BMJ Case Reports, which includes a waiver of the individual membership fee of $270/year normally required to publish cases in it. This journal is peer reviewed, indexed in MEDLINE, and has a 42% acceptance rate. Published cases are available to subscribers immediately upon publication and are free to the world after 2 years, giving your work greater visibility.
