ICMx Journal

In response to the need for a dedicated platform for important experimental research, ESICM has created Intensive Care Medicine Experimental (ICMx).

About ICMx

Outgoing Editor in Chief, Professor Mervyn Singer, a charismatic, senior investigator and author, will be sorely missed by all those involved in the journal.   He launched the journal in 2013 and has nurtured its development, supported by a strong editorial team.

To the Editorial seat, we warmly welcome Peter Radermacher, Professor of Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care Medicine and Chair of the Institute of Anaesthesiological Pathophysiology and Process Engineering at the University Medical School in Ulm, Germany.

Peter is an accomplished researcher, reviewer and editor, and no stranger to the journal, having served as Associate Editor and on the Editorial Board of ICMx since its launch. With more than 400 original articles and reviews published in peer reviewed journals and text books, we look forward to seeing ICM Experimental prosper under his direction.

Submissions to ICMx

ICMx is an online, open-access electronic journal.

As an open access journal, ICMx guarantees rapid and widespread dissemination of research and operating under the SpringerOpen stable ensures quality processing and publicising of manuscripts. Open access does require an Article Processing Charge however, ESICM members are entitled to a 40% discount (please contact members@esicm.org for access code). Additionally, many institutions have an arrangement with Springer to fully or partially subsidise the cost, while waivers can be applied to those in many developing world countries or for those who demonstrate financial hardship.

While acceptance to our journal is not guaranteed, you can ensure that your submission has the best possible chance for success by carefully reviewing and adhering to the ICMx instructions for authors.
