Diagnosis - Call for papers
View THE INAUGURAL ISSUE OF our new open access journal at

Recently, the inaugural issue of our new Open Access journal Diagnosis was published.

Diagnosis is a new international peer-reviewed quarterly open access journal that aims to fill the need for rapid publication of articles on how diagnosis can be advanced, how it is taught, and how and why it can fail, leading to diagnostic errors. It provides an inspiring forum for authors and readers interested in improving diagnostic quality to exchange important recent research and ideas. We welcome both fundamental and applied work, as well as improvement initiatives, opinions and debates to encourage new thinking on improving this critical aspect of healthcare quality.  Diagnosis will address over-diagnosis, under-diagnosis, and misdiagnosis, and combines the academic and clinical aspects of quality and safety in healthcare.  Authors and readers will include physicians, academicians, educators, healthcare managers and leaders, patients, the diagnostic industry, as well as policy makers.

On behalf of our Editors-in-Chief, Mark L. Graber and Mario Plebani, we would like to kindly invite you to contribute a manuscript to our new Journal. We welcome research submissions, reviews, editorials, and case presentations.

We are offering rapid editorial evaluation and short publication times without any compromise on scientific quality. We want to emphasize that there will be no page charges, no charges for color illustrations, and no charge for open access publication. Accepted papers are published ahead of print in an accelerated online-only format for immediate availability to the scientific community.

Manuscripts are managed professionally through the Thomson Reuters manuscript submission system ScholarOne. Manuscripts should be submitted online at:
