Topics in MRI: An Open Access Journal is an international, fully open access journal devoted to the publication of basic and clinical research, educational and review articles, and case reports related to the development and use of diagnostic applications of magnetic resonance in medicine. The goal of this journal is to provide a forum for research and clinical applications of MRI for radiologists, physicists and physicians working in medical MR imaging from other specialties such as neurologists, surgeons, cardiologists, and more.
All peer-reviewed articles published by Topics in MRI are made freely and permanently accessible online upon publications, without subscription charges. The open access policy model allows maximum visibility of articles published in this journal as they are freely available to the global community. Authors retain copyright and articles are published under a Creative Commons Attribution License.
In addition, articles in open access journals are published more rapidly compared to traditional, subscription-based and printed journals. This translates to increased higher availability, visibility and potentially citation impact of open access published research.
