Basic information

Autopsy and Case Reports is an Open Access online medical journal published quarterly by the Hospital Universitário of the Universidade de São Paulo (HU USP). Since 2018, Autopsy and Case Reports publishes using a continuous publication workflow, allowing the immediate posting of articles in their final form on the journal website as soon as they are ready for publication.

Autopsy and Case Reports aims to significantly contribute to the development of clinical thinking skills, diagnostic methods, management, classification, and treatment of diseases by publishing manuscripts on academic autopsies with evidence of strong clinical-pathological-radiologic correlation and excellent image documentation and supporting literature revision. Contributions are accepted in the form of autopsy and clinical case reports, reviews and systematic reviews, short communications, and original articles.

The journal is directed at health professionals regardless of their specialty or acting field in the health sciences. Particular focus is given to the medical community as a way to state Autopsy and Case Reports Editorial Board's belief that case reports, which have become progressively discredited by the majority of medical journals, do represent an invaluable opportunity as a resource for knowledge expansion and teaching purposes to both, novice and senior health professionals.

O título abreviado do periódico é Autops Case Rep, que deve ser usado em bibliografias, notas de rodapé, referências e legendas bibliográficas.
