Society of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance chooses open access
Date:12/12/2007

BioMed Central, the worlds largest publisher of open access journals, is pleased to announce that the Journal of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (JCMR) is moving to BioMed Centrals open access publishing platform from the traditional subscription publishers, Taylor & Francis. The move from a subscription publisher to BioMed Central will allow the Society of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (SCMR) members and JCMR authors to disseminate their research in the burgeoning field of cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging and spectroscopy more efficiently. In addition, BioMed Centrals open access policy ensures that their work will reach not only other SCMR members, but the widest possible global audience.

Beginning in January 2008, JCMR (www.jcmr-online.com) readers will have free, instant online access to all published articles not only on BioMed Centrals website, but also on PubMed Central as well as other open access repositories, free from the constraints of print publication cycles.

Open access will bring benefits to readers that are of utmost importance to science - free, unfettered and widespread access to all research, said Dudley Pennell, editor in chief, JCMR. Authors will benefit from faster publication cycles, and an increase in readership leading to increased citation counts. Were looking forward to making the switch to open access publishing via BioMed Central.

The first and only journal devoted exclusively to CMR, Journal of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (JCMR) includes basic and clinical research articles, technical notes, review articles, and editorial commentary on the research, design, development, and evaluation of magnetic resonance methods applied to the cardiovascular system.

Were pleased that such a highly-regarded society journal has selected BioMed Central to publish its open access journal, said Matthew Cockerill, publisher of BioMed Central. SCMR society members and others publishing in the journal will benefit from rapid publication thanks to BioMed Central's streamlined manuscript submission tools and online peer review system. Our open access platform is the best way for SCMR members to communicate the latest findings and state-of-the-art reviews in their field.

JCMR is part of a growing stable of society journals now published by BioMed Central. Most recently, Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition (JISSN) moved its publishing activities to BioMed Central. Others include Asia Pacific Family Medicine, the regional journal for the World Organization of National Colleges, Academies and Academic Associations of General Practitioners/Family Physicians, and Acta Veterinaria Scandinavica, the official journal of the Veterinary Associations of the Nordic Countries.
