'Case Reports in Marine Mammal Pathology' is an occasional, peer-reviewed journal published on-line by Pacific Marine Mammal Center. They will be authored by veterinary students and veterinarians completing externships, internships, etc. at Pacific Marine Mammal Center. In addition, we will occasionally solicit reviews or other pertinent articles from interested parties. These papers will be 'photographically rich' and without length constraints. They will be considered 'living documents', as they will be periodically revised to include corrections, updates, revised data interpretations and other changes we feel appropriate to the content and message of the paper. If you have any questions or would liked to submit a paper please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
