Frequently Asked Questions
The Journal of Education and Teaching in Emergency Medicine (JETem) is an online, open access, peer-reviewed journal-repository for EM educators. We are providing scholarly opportunities for EM educators to share their educational content in a peer-reviewed setting, and a central repository for high-quality educational materials in a well-organized, searchable format.
JETem is published quarterly. We accept submissions throughout the year. Our publication dates are January 15, April 15, July 15, and October 15.
We accept submissions on a rolling basis, but in general due to the time it takes for reviews, author edits and copyediting require submissions to be in at least 3 months prior to the publication date, otherwise they will be considered for the next publication date. Our turnaround time to authors averages 4-6 weeks.

Additionally, part of the revenue to cover copyediting and other administrative costs is from the $150 acceptance fee charged for accepted manuscripts. Editors do not make any financial profit (in any form, including buy-down of hours or stipend) for their work towards JETem.

Yes! All of our images are labeled for use with modification (Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International). Our goal is to provide Emergency Medicine educators with the largest available EM image bank for use with lectures, podcasts and other teaching materials. We do ask you give attribution to JETem by noting “Images courtesy of JETem.org” during your lecture or with the end references. We also offer a small JETem logo that can be added to images for attribution if you like (click below to download), but we do not require it.
Much of the educational content you download will include a folder with multiple files. Sometimes you may need to download these separately and the file with answer keys will require login. Typically these files include:
- The entire article including abstract, user guide, and learner materials (this file will be title with the authors name, article title and citation information, for example “Boysen-Osborn M, et al. Didactic Teaching, JETem 2016, 1(1)L1-12”)
- Separate learner materials that may need to be printed (eg. a separate file for the iRAT, gRAT and GAE in a TBL for ease of printing or a worksheet or handout for a small group session)
- May include a video or article to be used as learner responsible content
- An instructor handout with answers to any worksheets or learner materials
For images these files include:
- The entire article including abstract and images or link to video on youtube.com
- An option to download just the images or videos
JETem collects statistics on the number of downloads for each publication and will provide this information to authors annually (in December) or upon request so they can track their impact and show it to their promotions committee. If you need your statistics please email JETemOnline@gmail.com and we will provide them for you.
We do not require login to see our content. However, we encourage users to register and login as it helps us track user and download information for authors. Additionally, login is required for rating materials and leaving feedback.
We do everything we can to keep your personal information protected and will NEVER sell your information or provide it to a third-party.
JETem works hard to keep our costs down to minimize costs to our authors, however, we do charge a $150 acceptance fee to help cover costs of copy-editing and administration. We only charge these fees for large manuscripts (lectures, podcasts, simulations, oral boards, TBLs, small groups, workshops, curricula and innovations) and they are waived for VisualEM submissions. None of our editors receive any form of compensation (buy down, stipend) for their work on JETem. The acceptance fee is purely to cover costs for our website, staff copyeditors, and other administrative staff. This acceptance fee is only charged once your submission has been accepted. JETem is willing to waive the acceptance fee after the article has been accepted for authors who come from low income or lower middle income countries on a case by case basis.
