Received for publication December 15, 2010; accepted December 15, 2010.
The Journal of ECT is pleased to introduce the new publication format that we call Brief Clinical Report Letters. This format was introduced after careful discussion with our Editorial Board, and it is intended to allow us to accept the many interesting case reports that often exceed the resources for being published in full in the print version of J ECT. This new format will be a mix of both print and web-exclusive publishing and should allow us to publish the web-exclusive portion of many cases within 2 months of acceptance. The publication of a Brief Clinical Report Letter will have 2 pieces: (1) the entire case will be published online, in full, as a letter-usually within 2 months after acceptance; (2) the authors' names, the title of the paper, and a 100-word abstract will be published in the print version of J ECT after the web-exclusive publishing. Citation of the authors' work will follow the usual format and will include issue numbers and page numbers of J ECT.
Innovative and thought-provoking cases may still be accepted as regular papers to be published in full in print issues of the Journal, and the Journal continues to encourage submission of cases. Submitted cases, which are less innovative or less thought-provoking, may be returned to the authors with a request that the paper be reformatted to fit our Brief Clinical Report Letters.
The Journal of ECT hopes that this new offering will encourage the submission of many good cases while still allowing us to be timely in publishing the papers that we receive.
