The British Institute of Radiology launches new open access journal

Authors looking to publish their papers in a wholly open access journal need look no further than the newly announced BJR|Open, the latest in the portfolio of journals from the British Institute of Radiology. BJR|Open will join BJR and BJR|case reports, publishing articles, reviews and features from across the whole of the radiological sciences, including radiology, radiation oncology, radiobiology, medical physics, nuclear medicine and all allied areas. 

BJR|Open welcomes submissions from across the world as well as from all the professions in the sector. The journal will be overseen by an expert international Editorial Board and will benefit from the same rigorous, double blind peer review undertaken by all BIR journals. With the added benefit of being fully open access, all articles will be free to read for all and receive high visibility.

The new journal has two founding Editors-in-Chief Professor Katja Pinker, Professor of Radiology at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York, USA and Professor Habib Zaidi, Chief Physicist at Geneva University Hospital, Switzerland, who are both very excited to be involved.  Professor Zaidi described the journal as, “a fantastic home for high quality research, offering authors the opportunity to disseminate their work widely amongst the radiology community.”

Professor Pinker added, “I am delighted to be involved in the development of this new journal. I think it is a really exciting time for the field of radiology, with new methods and technologies emerging, and we aim to reflect this and publish high quality research from across our multidisciplinary community”.

The journal will be open for submissions later in 2018. For an introductory period there will be no publication charges, thereafter there will be a reduced rate for BIR members.
