In 2013, the Journal of Medical Radiation Sciences (JMRS) was created by the merging of The Radiographer, the Journal of the Australian Society of Medical Imaging and Radiation Therapy (ASMIRT) (formerly the Australia Institute of Radiography (AIR)), and Shadows, the Journal of the New Zealand Institute of Medical Radiation Technology (NZIMRT).
JMRS is an international and multi-disciplinary, peer-reviewed Journal that accepts manuscripts related to medical imaging/diagnostic radiography, radiation therapy, nuclear medicine, medical ultrasound/sonography, and the complementary disciplines of medical physics, radiology, radiation oncology, nursing, psychology, and sociology. JMRS is fully open-access and is available online at www.jmrsjournal.com.
