Instructions for authors

Journal of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (JCMR), the official journal of the Society for Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance, is an open access, online journal that publishes high impact articles on all aspects of basic and clinical research on the design, development, manufacture, and evaluation of magnetic resonance methods applied to the cardiovascular system.

Each article type published by Journal of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance follows a specific format, as detailed in the corresponding instructions for authors; please choose an article type from the list on the left to view the instructions for authors.

The instructions for authors includes information about preparing a manuscript for submission to Journal of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance, criteria for publication and the online submission process. Other relevant information about the journal's policies, the refereeing process and so on can be found in 'About this journal'.

Journal of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance has sought feedback on the use of simplified terms to describe applied Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance pulse sequence techniques in clinical reports, scientific articles and societal guidelines or recommendations. We recommend that authors follow the proposed simplified CMR sequence terminology suggested in table 1 of the article “Simplifying cardiovascular magnetic resonance pulse sequence terminology.” [J Cardiovasc Magn Reson 2014; 16: 3960], when submitting a manuscript.
