The first and only journal devoted exclusively to cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR), the Journal of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (JCMR) is an open-access journal, publishing high impact articles on all aspects of basic and clinical research on the design, development, manufacture, and evaluation of magnetic resonance methods as applied to the cardiovascular system. JCMR fills a critical gap in the science and practice of cardiology and related disciplines.
All authors who are SCMR members publish for free in JCMR.
JCMR covers topics such as:
Reporting new information and expertly reviewing all aspects of the field for the entire cardiac MR community, the JCMR serves as essential reading for:

Aims and Scope:
The Journal of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance publishes basic and clinical research articles, technical notes, review articles, and editorial commentary on the research design, development, manufacture, and evaluation of magnetic resonance methods applied to the cardiovascular system. The Journal covers topics involving the cardiovascular system such as: new applications of magnetic resonance; new diagnostic strategies; risk assessment; characterization of diseases; new methods to enhance acquisition and data analysis; results of multi-center or larger individual center studies that provide insight into the utility of MR; and basic biological insights derived by MR methods.
All manuscripts should be submitted electronically via this page.
The instructions to authors are here.
As an open-access journal, JCMR is freely and permanently accessible to all, without subscription charges or registration barriers. To cover the publication costs, authors are charged an article-processing charge (APC) upon editorial acceptance.
All SCMR members publish FOR FREE as a membership benefit.*
If your institution is a BMC supporter or full member, and you are an SCMR member, then we ask you to complete the institutional details so that the fees are paid directly, as this reduces costs for SCMR. If your institution is not a BMC member, and you are not an SCMR member either, then you will have to pay the APC.
* Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to request the BioMed Central membership code, which you will need to input on the payment page during manuscript submission.
