Celebrating the 5th anniversary partnership with BMC

5th anniversary2019 marks the 5th anniversary of the partnership between the International Cancer Imaging Society (ICIS) and BMC to publish Cancer Imaging.

Over the past 5 years, the journal has become a well-respected journal in the field and has established itself in the second quartile of the ‘Radiology, Nuclear Medicine & Medical Imaging’ category of Journal Citation Reports. Cancer Imaging is still currently the only journal within Journal Citation Reports that is dedicated to solely publishing articles on imaging techniques in cancer.

To mark this occasion, we are looking back at the journal’s milestone achievements and highlighting some of the best content from the past 5 years.

"This year we celebrate the five-year anniversary of working with our publishers BMC. It has been a hugely successful partnership as demonstrated by the increasing Impact Factor achieved by the journal.

I would like to congratulate everyone who has contributed to making the journal of Cancer Imaging among the leading cancer journals worldwide. This is a reflection of the hard work and dedication of our Joint Editors-in-Chief, Professor Rodney Hicks and Professor Annick Van den Abbeele, of the reviewers and of all those who have submitted articles to the journal as well as, of course, our Publishers who have consistently produced a journal of the highest possible standards."

"It is gratifying to see the overwhelming success of our society's journal since its inception. The remarkable rise in its Impact Factor and the increase in the number and quality of submissions both indicate its position now as one of the leading journals of cancer imaging. Its success is a great tribute to the dedication, hard work and commitment of Cancer Imaging's editors, editorial board and reviewers. Moreover, it has fulfilled the original vision of its place as one of the indispensable platforms of the International Cancer Imaging Society.

"Congratulations to Cancer Imaging on its 5th Anniversary of being under the umbrella of BioMed Central. The journal continues its good work publishing imaging and imaging related articles relevant to oncology.  The journal readership has continued to increase, with growth being especially seen in clinician/researchers from Eastern Europe and Asia.

"My heartiest congratulations to Cancer Imaging on the occasion of its 5th anniversary. Cancer Imaging, the journal of the International Cancer Imaging Society, is an essential repository for peer-reviewed articles of the highest scientific standard in this specialised field. The journal also serves to increase the awareness of the importance of imaging in cancer and to make important contributions to our common goal of improving cancer care globally. It’s success is evidenced by a consistent increase in submissions, citations, ranking and Impact Factor in the recent years. I am privileged to witness the growth of our flagship journal in the ever-advancing field of oncology."
