About Journal of Imaging


Journal of Imaging (ISSN 2313-433X) is an international, multi/interdisciplinary, open access, peer-reviewed journal which publishes reviews, original research papers, communications, case reports, letters, and short notes in all fields of imaging research. There is no restriction on the maximum length of the papers.

Our aim is to provide an advanced forum for studies on imaging covering image acquisition, processing and understanding. Techniques, procedures, methods, applications or advances in these areas are welcome. We encourage scientists and engineers working in any area related to, or using, imaging techniques to publish their theoretical and experimental results in as much detail as possible so that the experiments can be reproduced. For those open source software, you are welcomed to reveal the programme code and make datasets available, with explicit permission, which surely will make your papers more attractive. We could promote high visibility for this material in our web page. An appropriate citation will be required when third authors using or citing the open source software.
