Journal of Radiological Science Introduction
Starting with the March 2011 issue (Volume 36, Number 1), Chinese Journal of Radiology is now called Journal of Radiological Science (JRS). We believe this title better reflects the journal’s content, while addressing the broad spectrum of radiologic sciences in the new era. The new name will allow the journal to continue to grow and fulfill its mission to be a leading, peer-reviewed journal that bridges the gap between academic researchers and practicing clinicians in the field.
The RSROC’s Chinese Journal of Radiology (CJR) has been published since 1976, the first Editor is Dr. Kuang-Yao Chen, and later Dr. Jen-Huey Chiang laid the foundation of its continued growth. The CJR is initially quarterly issued a journal and then a bimonthly in 1996. The original goal is to provide our colleagues with opportunities to publish and perfect their work in researches and practices. The new Board of Directors and Supervisors, are now endeavoring to transform the journal to the international level with impacts and contributions to the advancement of the field.
The core focus of the journal remains unchanged with original articles, research report, case studies and various columns. Over the years we continue to expand our dissemination of peer-reviewed, evidence-based information to incorporate broader aims and scope of diagnostic radiology, radiation oncology, nuclear medicine, radiologic biology, physical therapy, radiologic physics and other radiologic sciences-related fields.
It is our desire that the name change not only allows us to embrace important changes of the radiologic sciences but also provide easy access to our publication in a timely fashion. With the support of our members, we aim to publish a high scientific quality journal with global reputation to serving the field.
We hope you share in our excitement. As always, we welcome your feedback.
