Aims and scope

EJNMMI Research publishes new basic, translational and clinical research in the field of nuclear medicine and molecular imaging.

Regular features include original research articles, short communication of preliminary data on innovative research, interesting case reports, editorials, and letters to the editor.

Educational articles on basic sciences, fundamental aspects and controversy related to pre-clinical and clinical research or ethical aspects of research are also welcome.

The journal also considers preliminary Research Articles or short communications that include novel findings, methods or radiopharmaceuticals with a high potential but limited data available, worth a preliminary information.

Timely reviews provide updates on current applications, issues in imaging research and translational aspects of nuclear medicine and molecular imaging technologies.

Topics include but not limited to innovative research covering all aspects of molecular imaging, e.g. radiopharmaceutical approaches with a high potential of clinical impact, important aspects in image reconstruction and accuracy, or within the theranostic field with therapy combinations or incorporation of artificial intelligence in image generation or interpretation.

Large prospective randomized trials are needed, to advance the application of new radiopharmaceuticals into clinical guidelines and daily routine. To generate the hypothesis and find novel approaches that can be tested in such highly complex and regulated trials, smaller scale “proof of mechanism” or phase 0 studies, preclinical research with a strong clinical focus, as well as analysis on retrospective data are needed. This will be the focus and strength of EJNMMI Research, at the intercept between clinical nuclear medicine, radiochemistry, biology, physics, drug development and radiation oncology.

This journal has been launched by Springer and is a companion journal to the EJNMMI family. Authors of papers with a focus on nuclear medicine, whose manuscript despite high quality is not accepted in the mother journal can submit to this daughter journal. Besides regular papers the journal gives the possibility to publish reviews, educational papers guidelines and short communications.

By this combination of different articles, I hope to establish a unique platform for nuclear medicine, with the potential to reach the important audience in clinic as well as in basic science.
