New Wiley Open Access title launches: Journal of Medical Radiation Sciences

Hoboken, N.J., February 22, 2013. John Wiley & Sons, Inc., today announced the launch of Journal of Medical Radiation Sciences (JMRS), combining The Radiographer (now in its 60th volume) from the Australian Institute of Radiography (AIR) and Shadows (in its 56th Volume) from the New Zealand Institute of Medical Radiation Technology (NZIMRT). The new, combined journal joins Wiley as part of the Wiley Open Access program. Wiley will also publish AIR's monthly newsletter, Spectrum.

JMRS is an international and multidisciplinary peer-reviewed journal that accepts manuscripts related to medical imaging / diagnostic radiography, radiation therapy, nuclear medicine, medical ultrasound / sonography, and the complementary disciplines of medical physics, radiology, radiation oncology, nursing, psychology and sociology. The combined editorial boards have come together under the leadership of the Editor-in-Chief, Cherry Agustin, Radiation Therapist Educator at The Crown Princess Mary Cancer Centre Westmead, Sydney, and the deputy editors Dr Ann Poulos (Adjunct Associate Professor, Discipline of Medical Radiation Sciences, Faculty of Health Sciences, The University of Sydney) and Hannah Thompson (Senior Clinical Tutor, Radiation Therapist, Midcentral Health Ltd. Palmerston North, New Zealand) to bring this publication to the professions worldwide.

AIR President, Bruce Harvey, commented, "Imaging and treatment equipment in Australia and New Zealand is state of the art, and the specialist practitioners must constantly keep up-to-date by researching and communicating their findings to their colleagues. The peak professional associations for radiographers, sonographers and radiation therapists in Australia and New Zealand have therefore joined their peer reviewed journals into one new international publication, the Journal of Medical Radiation Sciences to enable faster communication and greater collaboration between the countries and specialties."

Journal of Medical Radiation Sciences is the latest addition to Wiley's portfolio of Radiography, Radiology & Imaging journals and will benefit from relationships with widely respected titles including the Journal of Medical Imaging and Radiation Oncology and Journal of Magnetic Resonance Imaging.

"It's terrific to be starting a working relationship with AIR and NZIMRT in publishing the Journal of Medical Radiation Sciences in a new open access model, and again with AIR on their monthly magazine Spectrum," said Mark Robertson, Wiley's VP and Publishing Director, Scientific, Technical, Medical and Scholarly, Asia-Pacific, and Executive Director of Wiley Australia.
