New!  Informational Session for Journal Reviewers at the Annual Meeting in Singapore

Please join Mark Schweitzer MD, editor of JMRI, and me for an educational session “Manuscript Reviewing for ISMRM’s Scientific Journals” Monday May 9, 18:45-19:45 in Room 300-302 at the Suntec Convention Center. We introduced this session last year in Toronto, and attendance was sufficiently high—even after a busy Monday—to offer it again. After our brief talks, there will be lots of opportunity for questions and discussion.

OnlineOpen 25% Discount for ISMRM Members

Magn Reson Med is very pleased to continue to offer its standard publication option: No page charges, including color pages in print.

Some authors, institutions, or funding agencies however, prefer or require papers to be freely and immediately available for download by anyone, regardless of their subscription status, i.e., Open Access. For those authors, Wiley-Blackwell offers an author-paid publication option called OnlineOpen. This option is only available for accepted papers, so if an author makes this choice it has absolutely no bearing on the peer-review process or any editorial decision.

We are pleased that our publisher is offering ISMRM Members a 25% discount on OnlineOpen fees for their Magn Reson Med papers. The author applying for the discount must be a current ISMRM Member. More information is available by clicking on the OnlineOpen link on the Magn Reson Med homepage.
