Submitting Brief Reports

Briefs will be considered using the same criteria (equal in rigor) as for original research, but they can be smaller in scope and may be less generalizable to other settings. An example could be education research papers that focus on a single program, institution, or project with a limited number of participants/subjects.

KJM may publish briefs that are succinctly present research relevant to medical education and medicine. Also, exploratory, or pilot studies, can be submitted as brief reports.

Brief Reports will have a limit of only 1,500 words.
