Based in Palo Alto, California, Cureus is the medical journal for a new generation of both doctors AND patients. Leveraging the power of an online, crowd-sourced community platform, Cureus promotes medical research by offering tools that better serve and highlight the people who create it, resulting in better research, faster publication and easier access for everyone.
We make it easier and faster to publish your work - it's always free and you retain the copyright. What's more, the Cureus platform is designed to provide a place for physicians to build their digital CV anchored with their posters and articles.
Today, generating an audience for your article depends almost entirely on a journal's circulation, limiting exposure to only a few thousand physicians in your field. Medicine is increasingly cross-disciplinary and physicians are reading thought-provoking articles from specialties outside their own - while patients have virtually no access to this important content. Cureus is cross-disciplinary and gives access to leading edge content to everyone.
Join the Cureus Community and help us revolutionize how medical knowledge gets published and shared.
