The Journal of Global Radiology (JGR) is a peer-reviewed, open-access, specialized journal of radiology that documents and studies issues surrounding global access to and delivery of medical imaging services, with a focus on low-income or resource-poor regions. JGR explores the practical and technological challenges involved in expanding global access to radiology services, and their intersection with issues of medical education, economic and infrastructural development, public health and health policy. The journal seeks to facilitate dialogue, collaboration and exchange among the many medical and nonmedical professionals involved in radiology outreach efforts around the world, and welcomes submissions of a range of content, including original research, editorials and country reports.

NEW! The Journal of Global Radiology has been accepted into the Directory of Open Access Journals! Read the announcement.


The Journal of Global Radiology is now accepting submissions. JGR publishes articles as they become available for publication, following a thorough peer review process. JGR does not charge subscription, submission, or author fees, and authors retain ownership of the copyright for their content. The editors accept online submissions via the JGR website.
