This year, Interventional Neuroradiology will be published in the traditional printed hard copy format and also in a digital edition available on the Internet. This move will allow our readers to exploit the myriad opportunities digital medium has to offer, especially for a journal with an international readership. The subscription price will be lower in view of cost savings resulting from the digital format. The digital subscription will offer readers the leaf through format on-line, the PDF to download and print, and bibliography search with access to a dynamic articles archive. We are convinced that the digital format will further … Continue reading >>
Did you know that AJNR offers you now even more “brain food”? Twice per week- Tuesdays and Fridays- we give you a new Brain Snack. These are bite-size pieces of information (“pearls”) on clinically pertinent topics chosen from articles appearing in the corresponding month. All snacks come with their reference and a link to the article they came from. All you have to do to consume them is click on the Brain Snacks link on AJNRs homepage.… Continue reading >>
This blogsite is now available on a special platform (WPtouch) for iPhone. Once you access AJNRBLOG.ORG, your iPhone should default into the mobile mode automatically (if not, you can manually change it at the bottom of the screen). For those using other devices, such as a Blackberry, our standard platform should continue to be satisfactory. The new platform should also work well with devices that are android-based. Please note that our iPhone application does not support “pinching and stretching” but despite this the text is clearly readable and the illustrations are of high quality.
I know that many of you have faced the following annoying situation: you find an article that you must read but to do so you have to pay $20.00-$30.00! If you, or the institution you work for, subscribe to AJNR all of its contents should be available for perusing. If you do not subscribe we now offer an alternative to buying the article you need: DeepDyve. DeepDyve is the largest online rental service for scientific articles. Its database houses some 30 million articles and you may preview any of them free and rent the entire article for 24 hours for … Continue reading >>
In the last issue of JACR (J Am Coll Radiol 2010; 7: 490-494) Dr. James Brenner addresses some of the more subtle manifestations of bias in the scientific literature. These biases arise because they are generally not identified during the peer review process and because literature is often (mis)quoted by not going back and reading the original articles. Misleading data self perpetuates when this happens. I urge all of our authors to go back to original articles and read them and judge their quality and significance that way. He also writes: “The use of adverbs should have a restricted … Continue reading >>
I am very happy to announce that AJNR’s new Impact Factor is 3.296 up from 2.745 last year. AJNR will continue to offer the highest quality scientific articles and we will be fine tuning the contents of the Journal to assure that the Impact Factor and other metrics continue to improve.… Continue reading >>
“Brain Tumor Imaging, Volume 1: Pretherapy” is the latest Special Collection from the American Journal of Neuroradiology. Distilling the best of the many articles related to brain tumor imaging that appear in the pages of AJNR posed a daunting task, but Editor-in-Chief Mauricio Castillo knew that Collection Editor Soonmee Cha of the University of California, San Francisco would be successful. “Dr. Cha is a respected investigator, a contributor of high quality and clinically relevant articles to AJNR and other journals, and a member of our Editorial Board,” he explained. Dr. Cha chose to categorize and present this compilation of research … Continue reading >>
Most of you know that last year AJNR entered a cooperative agreement with Interventional Neuroradiology (IN). Since AJNR accepts very few case reports and technical notes, we encourage the authors of these types of articles to send them to our “sister” journal, IN. Many prospective authors can rest assured that their articles will be thoroughly and fairly evaluated by Dr. Karel terBrugge and his editorial team. Through the efforts of Dr. Marco Leonardi who publishes IN the journal is now indexed in MEDLINE making it more important, relevant, and useful. IN is now in its 15th year of publication and … Continue reading >>
We are happy to announce that starting on March 19th, AJNR will be enhanced with the Hotlight feature. This nifty addition allows readers to instantly retrieve medical images (from the ARRS Goldminer program), journal articles (from PubMed), and view terms and their definitions (from MeSH and RadLex). How does it work? It is simple:
-When you are viewing an article on hypertext form (HTML) simply highlight the term you want to search (remember that Hotlight only works when viewing articles on the HTML format),
-if this highlighted term is in the database a “lightbulb” icon will show up beside it,… Continue reading >>
