Elsevier Launches New Open Access Journal – NeuroImage: Clinical

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, announces the launch of NeuroImage: Clinical, a new open access journal, and sister journal to NeuroImage.

NeuroImage: Clinical provides a vehicle for communicating important advances in the study of abnormal structure-function relationships of the human nervous system based on imaging. It offers authors the choice of two Creative Commons licenses, either Creative Commons By Attribution or Creative Commons by Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike.

Paul Fletcher, MD, Bernard Wolfe Professor of Health Neuroscience at the University of Cambridge, UK, and co-Editor-in-Chief said of the journal launch, “With the growing importance of clinical neuroimaging, we hope that the new journal can serve the field by publishing innovative, high quality studies, reviews and opinions – work that may ultimately prove valuable in informing and improving clinical practice.”

Scott Grafton, MD, Professor of Psychology and Director of the Imaging Center at the University of California, Santa Barbara, also co-Editor-in-Chief added, “NeuroImage: Clinical provides an unprecedented opportunity to publish novel insights into the pathophysiology of nervous system disease based on cutting-edge methods of imaging and analysis.”

Michael Osuch, Executive Publisher at Elsevier said, “In recent years, advances in the field of neuroimaging have enabled more robust clinical research studies to be undertaken, and opened up the potential for translating these applications into having a direct impact in both diagnosis and treatment of neuropsychiatric diseases. This new launch will provide the community with a high quality journal in which to publish these advances.”
