WestJem Indexed in MEDLINE Database

We are pleased to announce that the Western Journal of Emergency Medicine: Integrating Emergency Care with Population Health (WestJEM), published by the UC Irvine Department of Emergency Medicine, has been accepted for indexing in the National Library of Medicine’s MEDLINE® database beginning with Volume 15, Issue 1, 2014.

WestJEM is only the fifth such specialty journal in the United States, the only specialty journal published by an academic department of emergency medicine, as well as the first new one to be published in 25 years.

Our journal is the only American mainstream journal that is open-access, disseminating research and best practices to the developed and developing world, wherever there is an Internet connection. WestJEM has a print circulation of 3,000, an electronic distribution of 12,000, and gets more than 2.6 million page hits and downloads of our papers. We publish more than 150 papers per year in bimonthly issues.

I invite you to visit our website at, and join us in our pride in this significant scholarly accomplishment.
