We are proud to announce the birth of Biomedical
Imaging and Intervention Journal (biij), an open
access multidisciplinary online journal. biij
was set up to meet the challenges of biomedical imaging and
intervention facing the allied sciences community by providing
a new avenue for discussion and exchange of viewpoints.
So how is biij different from other scientific
online journals? biij’s objectives
- to provide free online access to all our scientific materials
in accordance with the Budapest
Open Access Initiative. biij plans
to remove unnecessary barriers that inhibit the sharing
of scientific knowledge and information to accelerate research,
enrich education and share the learning of the rich with
the poor and vice-versa. biij lays the
foundation to unite humanity in a common intellectual discussion
and to fulfill the quest for knowledge in a cost-effective
- to expand the scope of disseminating scientific information
through the Internet by making available a large stock of
teaching materials in the form of audio-video files from
presentations made at scientific meetings.
- through shared ownership by the scholarly community and
individuals involved in the field to shape the future direction
of the journal including ‘radiological’ and
allied organizations in the region that do not have their
own journals to share their research publications, guidelines,
etc. with others.
It gives us great pleasure to invite you to be a part of
biij by contributing articles for publication.
With your support, participation and commitment, we are confident
that we can overcome challenges to make biij,
an open access multidisciplinary international online journal
that will attract the best of publications in the field of
biomedical imaging and intervention, a success.
Articles for publication can be in the form of:
- Original research
- Review articles
- Teaching points
- 'How I do it'
- Letters, correspondence, etc
- Case reports
We welcome your comments. Thank you.
