Osteoarthritis Imaging: Volume 1
Osteoarthritis Imaging, the official journal of the International Society of Osteoarthritis Imaging, serves as a forum for the dissemination of current knowledge and information of imaging in osteoarthritis. The journal deals with advances in the methods and application of medical imaging in the context of basic science, clinical osteoarthritis research, its clinical application and clinical trials. Although medical imaging aspects are emphasized, the journal adopts an interdisciplinary approach. Scientific original articles are selected by the editor-in-chief with the input of a distinguished board of reviewers and editorial consultants, international in scope, representing the multiple disciplines concerned with imaging of osteoarthritis. The journal contributes to innovation (research), education (teaching and learning) and knowledge translation (implementing research into practice).
The journal publishes several different types of material. Original research articles provide new knowledge based on original research results. Systematic meta-analyses are also encouraged in this category. Studies should be hypothesis-driven and have well-described methods that can effectively answer the question addressed. These articles require appropriate statistical analyses. Scholarly narrative and systematic review articles are encouraged in addition that are intended to condense, clarify and summarize an area of study that has undergone recent change or advance. The editors will occasionally solicit this type of article from noted authorities. In addition, the journal provides a platform for perspectives, mini-reviews (covering a specific subject) and debate-style opinion pieces. In addition, we welcome a range intriguing initial observations, updates to previous work and established methods, valid negative results, and scientific data sets and descriptions.
Invited editorials accompanying scientific articles and carefully selected letters to the Editor will be accepted. In addition Osteoarthritis Imaging publishes thematic issues that cover a specific aspect of recent development.
Osteoarthritis Imaging is a gold open access journal meaning that millions of researchers globally will be able to immediately find and access publications, completely free. With competitive article publishing charges (APCs), the editorial board ensures that all our published articles maintain the highest standards of quality through a rigorous peer review process.
