Aims and scope

Journal of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (JCMR) publishes high-quality articles on all aspects of basic, translational and clinical research on the design, development, manufacture, and evaluation of cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) methods applied to the cardiovascular system. Topical areas include, but are not limited to:

  • New applications of magnetic resonance to improve the diagnostic strategies, risk stratification, characterization and management of diseases affecting the cardiovascular system.
  • New methods to enhance or accelerate image acquisition and data analysis.
  • Results of multicenter, or larger single-center studies that provide insight into the utility of CMR.
  • Basic biological perceptions derived by CMR methods.

Selected articles published in JCMR are being translated into various languages as part of a project coordinated by the Society for Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance. You can see the latest translated articles on the SCMR translated publications page.

SCMR are now able to offer CME (Continued Medical Education) credits for reading research published in JCMR. More information is available on the SCMR site.

Featured article: Automated analysis of cardiovascular magnetic resonance images

Clinical diagnosis of cardiovascular diseases (CvDs) require manually analyzing cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) images – a process that is both time consuming and prone to subjective errors. Researchers trained deep neural networks to perform an automated evaluation of a large dataset from the UK Biobank Resource. The study demonstrates a comparable performance of the automated analysis of CMR images to those of clinical experts, suggesting a future of machine learning facilitated CMR analysis.

Journal of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance is the official publication of the Society for Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (SCMR).

The mission of SCMR is to improve cardiovascular health by advancing the field of CMR through education, advocacy, networking, research and clinical excellence. The long term vision is that the expanded recognition and utilization of CMR will improve cardiovascular health and outcomes within the next 5 years.

From 1st July 2018, submissions from SCMR members will be charged a reduced article-processing charge of USD $500. More information on becoming an SCMR member can be found on the SCMR website.

Submissions prior to 1st July 2018 will have the full APC covered by the SCMR if this was previously arranged before 1st July 2018.
