Accelerated Publication Schedule in 2018:

To help meet the increased number of articles submissions (a record high of 1070 in 2017), we are publishing extra-large issues (~600 pages) for January-April 2018, and also paginating issues several months in advance. These changes are expected to significantly reduce delays authors have experienced receiving final volume/issue/page numbers for their articles.

Mobile Apps

Apps are available for both Apple and Android devices. To download the appropriate app, please search for words like “Wiley” and “MRM” at the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store.

OnlineOpen 25% Discount for ISMRM Members

Magn Reson Med is very pleased to continue to offer its standard publication option: No page charges, including color pages in print.

Some authors, institutions, or funding agencies however, prefer or require papers to be freely and immediately available for download by anyone, regardless of their subscription status, i.e., Open Access. For those authors, Wiley offers an author-paid publication option called OnlineOpen. This option is only available for accepted papers, so if an author makes this choice it has absolutely no bearing on the peer-review process or any editorial decision.

We are pleased that our publisher is offering ISMRM Members a 25% discount on OnlineOpen fees for their Magn Reson Med papers. The author applying for the discount must be a current ISMRM Member. More information is available by clicking on the OnlineOpen link on the Magn Reson Med homepage.
