More on the Journal of Medical Case Reports

The BioMed Central blog today posts a video interview with Professor Michael Kidd, editor of the new Journal of Medical Case Reports. He talks about the role of the case report in medicine, multimedia potential of the online format for this journal, and ways that the journal may evolve in the future.

He also talks about the use of case reports in disease discovery and hypothesis generation -- figuring out which research questions need to be pursued next in larger scale clinical studies (e.g. using cases to prompt a cohort study or case control study or clinical trial).
