Clinical Practice and Cases in Emergency Medicine  (CPC-EM) is a new journal affiliated with the Western Journal of Emergency Medicine (WestJEM) and will offer the latest in patient care case reports and images in the field of emergency medicine. The new journal is fully open-access, peer reviewed, and available anywhere with an internet connection without cost. WestJEM is spinning off the case reports and images from the core journal to continue to encourage submissions from junior authors, faculty, and residents of established and developing EM programs. The number of case reports and image submissions have increased dramatically over the years, and given constraints of space in the core journal, we have had to decline more than 80% of submissions. There is clearly a demand for publication and dissemination which we are providing through CPC-EM. The new journal will continue to foster junior scholarship and help grow WestJEM to a more substantial and influential journal.
