I am extremely pleased to accept the position of Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Clinical Imaging Science (JCIS). I am privileged to be working with an outstanding editorial team and a team of section editors of the highest caliber. This is an excellent opportunity to further the cause of radiology.

The information era is upon us. Internet has become a part of daily life, bringing the latest and wide ranging information to every one's fingertips. Medical publishing has also transformed to a digital format. The days of submitting double-spaced typed manuscripts and glossy pictures are long over. Keeping in line with modern advancements, JCIS will be launched as a Web-based medical journal.

Medical knowledge should be available to more than a privileged few. We, at JCIS, strongly support and contribute to the belief that everyone has a right to comprehensive, up-to-date medical information. We are convinced that such information must be available at no cost to all readers. JCIS will be an open access journal with a global presence, allowing medical articles to be freely downloaded without the need for any society affiliations anywhere in the world. As a new journal, we have decided to "Go Green" from day one. JCIS will be an entirely paperless online journal.

It is common knowledge that in print media, it can take anywhere from six months to a year from submission to publication of a scientific article. We believe that for dissemination of time-relevant information, this is too long. JCIS intends to shrink this to less than six weeks, thereby making available online the cutting-edge research and innovations in radiology to a worldwide reader forum before the information gets superseded due to delayed dissemination.

The journal's motto is "Share, Learn, and Improve". We are tremendously excited that we have an opportunity to enhance our readers' learning experience. We hope to achieve this by harnessing the power that can be drawn from today's information age. JCIS will be the medium through which we plan to make the sharing of new developments in radiology simple, convenient, and most importantly, current. Needless to say, it is our foremost hope that the spread of JCIS readership and knowledge exchange process will lead to true advances in the field of radiology and its practical applications. We shall endeavor to present all aspects of this exciting science of radiology in a manner that practitioners can comprehend and translate it into practice, leading to better health for all.

JCIS will strictly follow and adhere to the international guidelines and the code of conduct set for medical publications.

JCIS will accept articles in the following categories - original research articles, review articles, technical innovations, pictorial essays, case reports, radiologic-pathologic correlations, and letters to the editor. We are open to new and novel ideas from our readers and will welcome any suggestions that will go to make JCIS more comprehensive and a leader in its field.

I look forward with enthusiasm to sharing and exchanging ideas, thoughts, and information with each and every one of you.

With best wishes,

Vikram Dogra, MD
