Unlocking research: Radiography journal is going digital

Paper editions cease in January - SCoR members retain online access

Published: 25 November 2020 SCoR

Radiography is the official peer-reviewed journal of the College of Radiographers and the European Federation of Radiographer Societies. If you are a long-term member, you will be familiar with this quarterly publication.


For those joining the Society recently, Radiography is the International journal that promotes evidence-based practice by disseminating high quality clinical, scientific and educational research related to all aspects of diagnostic and therapeutic radiography. It is one of the longest established and most widely respected peer-reviewed publications in the field of radiography worldwide.


From January 2021, we will be changing the way in which we provide Radiography. Paper editions will not be produced. Full online access to the journal for all members will continue.


Published by Elsevier, Radiography will continue to provide you with the leading radiographer research available from across the UK and internationally. Moving across to a fully digital publication will allow for greater flexibility around how quickly research can be published as well as improved acceptance times for authors.


Charlotte Beardmore, Director of Professional Policy at SCoR said: ‘The breadth of content within our journal is outstanding and submissions to the journal continue to increase. From original research articles, narrative reviews and insightful editorials – this journal really is essential reading for all our members.


‘We are confident that our colleagues at Elsevier will continue to produce this essential title to the highest quality. In moving fully digital, our members will have an enriched reading experience, with the journal optimised for phones, websites and tablets. Richer content means we can look forward to an innovative use of podcasts, videos or slides to supplement our learning.’


Of the forthcoming change, Richard Evans, CEO of the SCoR, added: ‘Improving our sustainability is a key priority for us as an organisation. We very much welcome the work Elsevier is doing in not only reducing their carbon footprint, but also importantly in unlocking this research for a wider audience by moving fully digital.’


More information about this exciting change will be shared in a future edition of Synergy News.
