CNR: Stability and Growth
- 291 Downloads
This issue will be published close to this year’s annual conference of the German Society of Neuroradiology. The motto of this congress in Frankfurt am Main is “neuroRAD 2018 GOES INTERNATIONAL”. Our journal already took this step 12 years ago, when Klinische Neuroradiologie became Clinical Neuroradiology. We aimed to show that German-speaking neuroradiologists do not need to hide internationally and that we are able to establish an internationally respected journal to show the excellent neuroradiological work done in these countries.
Papers published in CNR are mainly cited in high-ranking journals, e. g. PLoS ONE (IF 2017: 2.766), Journal of Neurosurgery (4.318), European Radiology (4.027) and American Journal of Neuroradiology (AJNR; 3.653) and also in The New England Journal of Medicine (79.258), Lancet (53.254), Brain (10.840) and Stroke (6.239).
We are pleased that the situation of CNR is stabilizing in international comparison. A stable position as an international journal is neither a given fact nor can it be maintained without effort, which became apparent when journals such as the International Journal of Neuroradiology, the Neuroradiology Journal and others did not receive an IF in 2017 anymore.
The number of full-text downloads and submissions continues to increase, so we assume that we are on the right track. We hope that you will continue to support us by submitting good papers, by participating in the peer review process as a reviewer and by diligently citing works published in CNR.
For your support so far, I would like to thank you on behalf of the Editorial Board and Springer Nature
