Certainly, we cannot launch a new open access journal such as MedJEM without justifying why we aredoing so and what will be different about it.
First, we believe the specialty of emergency medicine (EM) as well as emergency, urgent and acutecare around the Mediterranean basin have reached over the last three decades a level of development,complexity and needs that require the establishment of a regional internationally-driven medical journal.The publication of such a journal constitutes a major milestone in the development of any specialty ingeneral - and of EM and emergency medical services in particular.
