The Journal name has been changed from Abdominal Imaging to Abdominal Radiology as it seeks to meet the professional needs of all abdominal radiologists by publishing clinically pertinent original, review, and practice related articles. Interventional radiology applications to the abdomen continue to grow—underscoring the growing role of abdominal radiologists to not only diagnose but also to treat various abnormalities and conditions. Abdominal Radiology includes the gastrointestinal tract (hollow and solid organs), genitourinary tract (kidneys, ureters, bladder and pelvic imaging) and abdominal interventional radiologic procedures.
As the official journal of the Society of Abdominal Radiology (SAR) it is aligned with the mission and vision of the Society. The Journal seeks international readers and authors and has recently affiliated with the Asian Society of Abdominal Radiology (ASAR), the European Society of Urogenital Radiology (ESUR) and the European Society of Gastrointestinal Radiology (ESGAR). High quality, clinically pertinent submissions that serve the entire abdominal radiology community at large are sought for publication.
The review and acceptance process for the Journal are expeditious, with prompt notification of the authors. The on-line date of publication is the official date of publication—usually occurring less than a month from acceptance. Publications in print occur several months later. Color images are provided at no-charge, and the size of the images are large to enable easy and reliable review. Special feature sections are commonly incorporated whereby several articles on a selected topic are included for a comprehensive subject review. Multidisciplinary authors and topics are encouraged. Case reports are generally not accepted unless they are the first report of a new disease or condition, or part of a special solicited section. The Journal seeks to provide author feedback in a respectful, encouraging and mentoring style.
Abdominal Radiology is covered and abstracted in Index Medicus-MEDLINE, Current Contents/Clinical Medicine, Excerpta Medica/EMBASE, SCI, SciSearch and ISI/BIOMED.
