Aims & Scope


Open Journal of Radiology (OJRad) is an international peer-reviewed, open-access journal dedicated to presenting the latest advancements in medical imaging. The Journal is interested in presenting a wide range of imaging topics of interest to the medical community. These would include imaging developments: 1) for diagnosis of disease and 2) for guiding and/or evaluating a therapeutic treatment. The journal is also interested in presenting research articles of general interest to the imaging community, for example: image acquisition, processing, multimodality image registration and segmentation. The goal of this journal is to provide a platform for scientists and academicians all over the world to promote, share, and discuss various new issues and developments in different areas of radiology.

All manuscripts must be prepared in English and are subject to a rigorous and fair peer-review process. Generally, accepted papers will appear online within 3 weeks followed by printed hard copy. The journal publishes original papers including but not limited to the following fields:

  • · Acquisition of radiological images
  • · Computed Tomography (CT)
  • · Fluoroscopy
  • · Interventional radiology
  • · MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging)
  • · Nuclear medicine
  • · Projection (plain) radiography
  • · Radiologist training
  • · Teleradiology
  • · Ultrasound

  • We are also interested in: 1) Short Reports—2-5 page papers where an author can present either preliminary data or an idea with theoretical background but has not yet completed the research needed for a complete paper; 2) Book Reviews—Comments and critiques.
