NEW YORK, December 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical
information products and services, announces the launch of Journal of
Pediatric Surgery Case Reports ( JPS Case Reports ), a new online-only, open
access journal devoted to the rapid publication of short, precise reports in
pediatric surgery. 

As a sister journal to Journal of Pediatric Surgery (JPS) , JPS Case Reports
will benefit from wide exposure and cross-promotion. JPS Case Reports will
present original, peer-reviewed case reports that identify unusual
presentations, novel diagnostic and therapeutic techniques, and lessons
learned all representing high clinical interest and educational value. 

Steven Stylianos, MD, Professor of Surgery & Pediatrics at Hofstra North
Shore-LIJ School of Medicine, Hempstead, New York, and Editor-in-Chief of JPS
Case Reports said of the launch, "In announcing the launch of Journal of
Pediatrics Case Reports we are reminded of the value that surgeons place on
learning from clinical anecdotes and patient-based stories. While case reports
may represent the lowest level of science, they remain the first line of
evidence of what actually happened." 

Jay Grosfeld, Editor of sister journal Journal of Pediatric Surgery , added,
"Dr. Stylianos is recognized as a national leader in the care of the injured
child and has had a very productive career. He is a member of the American
College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma and a Consultant to the Pediatric
Surgery Board of the American Board of Surgery. He is on the Executive Board
of the Pediatric Trauma Society."
