Dear SNMI Colleagues,
It gives me an immense pleasure to write about the Indian Journal of Nuclear Medicine (IJNM). SNM-India was founded in 1967 and subsequently, IJNM was launched as the official journal of the Society of Nuclear Medicine-India. IJNM is published quarterly by Medknow- a part of the Wolters Kluwer Health which is one of the largest open access publishers worldwide. IJNM provides up-to-date information on nuclear medicine that can be readily applied to clinical situations. It is a rapid communications journal and accepts original articles, reviews, case reports and commentaries covering Nuclear Medicine, molecular imaging, radionuclide therapies and the basic supporting sciences.
IJNM presents the continued reflection of academic growth and research activities of India in Nuclear Medicine and its clinical applications. The manuscripts describing research on preclinical and basic sciences (radiochemistry, radiopharmacy, radiobiology, radiopharmacology, medical physics, computing and engineering, and technical aspects (delivering nuclear medicine services) are welcomed. The journal is also intended to be of interest internationally to all members of the many medical and non-medical disciplines involved in nuclear medicine. In addition to papers reporting original studies, candidly written editorials and topical reviews are a regular feature of the journal.
With the painstaking efforts of the past and especially the current Editor-In-Chief, the IJNM is indexed in PubMed and is the most practice-oriented journal in the field of nuclear imaging, its numerous illustrations demonstrate physicians how to apply vital information immediately in their everyday healthcare practice. It is the best time for Nuclear Medicine in India as many innovative high end imaging technologies and ‘state of the art’ new theranostics are being practiced and the specialty is rapidly expanding throughout the country. I am sure with consistent efforts and scientific contributions of high standards by the members of SNMI and of International affiliated bodies, the IJNM will have a ‘quantum leap’ in achieving high impact factor in shortest possible time.
I congratulate Prof. BR Mittal and his editorial team for bringing out an excellent Conference (SNMICON-19) dedicated ‘Abstracts Issue of IJNM’ containing high quality research papers.
With kind regards
Prof. Baljinder Singh
President (Elect) Society of Nuclear Medicine-India
