Aims and scope

The primary topics of interest in Scandinavian Journal of Trauma, Resuscitation and Emergency Medicine (SJTREM) are the pre-hospital and early in-hospital diagnostic and therapeutic aspects of emergency medicine, trauma, and resuscitation. Contributions focusing on dispatch, major incidents, etiology, pathophysiology, rehabilitation, epidemiology, prevention, education, training, implementation, work environment, as well as ethical and socio-economic aspects may also be assessed for publication.


Ultrasound is a potentially attractive option for diagnosing pneumothoraces in the pre-hospital and retrieval environment, although a question arise: can Advanced Retrieval Practitioners (non-physicians) acquire & interpret ultrasound views of the lungs with sufficient quality to diagnose pneumothorax in the pre-hospital  setting when compared to expert reviewers?

Air ambulance services are facing several challenges when dealing with highly infectious patients. We collect here all most recent research updates on COVID-19 emergency procedures published in the journal to make them easily discoverable to the research community

COVID-19 and impact on peer review

As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.


The Scandinavian Journal of Trauma, Resuscitation and Emergency Medicine strongly encourages Authors to submit a Graphical Abstract.

A graphical abstract is a figure that clearly and succinctly conveys the main message of your research (paper). 

The goal of a graphical abstract is to attract readers' attention to the article and encourage them to read the whole paper, but also promote interdisciplinary scholarship and help readers quickly identify which papers are most relevant to their research interests.
This will appear underneath to the Abstract on the website.
TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS: The Graphical Abstract image should be 920x300 pixels and a maximum of 150KB, and should be submitted with your contribution as a separate file in a JPG,  PNG, or SVG electronic format. Please name the picture file "Graphical Abstract".
KEEP IT SIMPLE: Emphasize the new findings, highlight one process or make one point clear, use text sparingly and simple labels. Be also aware that effective use of color can enhance the graphical abstract both aesthetically and by directing the reader's attention to focal points of interest. 

The Resus Room Podcast

The officially partnered podcast of SJTREM, each month featuring a discussion of one of our recently published papers. 


Letters to the Editor and Commentaries

Major Incident Reporting provides an open access template that focuses on reporting medical management in the pre-hospital phase of major incident responses. The webpage will disseminate knowledge from major incidents with the overall goal to improve future medical response to major incidents.
