AEM Journal

Academic Emergency Medicine (AEM), established in 1994, is a peer-reviewed journal whose goal is to advance the science, education, and clinical practice of emergency medicine, to serve as a voice for the academic emergency medicine community, and to enhance the goals and objectives of the Society for Academic Emergency Medicine.

Academic Emergency Medicine is the official journal of the Society for Academic Emergency Medicine and has over 5,000 individual subscribers, plus access through medical libraries, universities, hospitals, and academic centers worldwide. Each May issue of AEM is comprised of the abstracts of over 500 scientific presentations from the SAEM Annual Meetings.

One of the guiding principles of the journal is to serve the academic emergency medicine community by thoughtful and thorough peer-review. Although the number of high-quality manuscripts submitted on an ongoing basis for consideration is substantial, publication is generally possible within 6-7 months after final acceptance.

Academic Emergency Medicine welcomes submissions from emergency physicians and related specialists from around the world. The Journal's Submission Guidelines provide useful information for authors wishing to submit manuscripts for consideration for publication in Academic Emergency Medicine.
