About the Journal

Focus and Scope

International Journal of Nuclear Medicine Research provides an authoritative setting for the publication of high quality internationally-relevant research with respect to the field of Nuclear Medicine.

Nuclear Medicine is crucial to early diagnosis and treatment of diseases that threaten human lives like coronary artery disease, brain illness and tumors etc. Nuclear medicine imaging studies are generally more organ- or tissue-specific (e.g.: lungs scan, heart scan, bone scan, brain scan, etc.) than those in conventional radiology imaging, which focus on a particular section of the body (e.g.: chest X-ray, abdomen/pelvis CT scan, head CT scan, etc.).

The journal aims to publish most complete and reliable source of information on the discoveries and current developments in the mode of original articles, review articles, case reports, short communications, expert opinions and conference papers.

Our areas of interest are; (but not limited to)
Diagnostic medical imaging
Hybrid scanning techniques
Practical concerns in nuclear imaging
Interventional nuclear medicine
Nuclear medicine therapies
Radiation dose

Peer Review Process

All submitted manuscripts are read by the members of editorial office. To save time for authors and peer-reviewers, only those papers that seem most likely to meet our editorial criteria are sent for formal peer review. Those papers judged by the editors to be of insufficient general interest or otherwise inappropriate are rejected promptly without external review.

Manuscripts judged to be of potential interest to our readership are sent for formal review, typically to two or three reviewers. The editors then make a decision based on the reviewers' advice, from among several possibilities:

  • Accept as it is
  • Accept with minor changes
  • Accept with major changes, inviting the authors to revise their manuscript to address specific concerns before a final decision is reached
  • Reject
