SNMMI Journals Unveil New Website and Social Media Sites

March 2, 2021

Reston, VA (March 2, 2021)—In an effort to provide the most up-to-date information to readers and the medical community, SNMMI journals have launched several new features that make it easy to access the latest nuclear medicine and molecular imaging research. These features include newly redesigned websites for JNM and its sister publication The Journal of Nuclear Medicine Technology (JNMT), as well as two new social media sites.

The new websites for JNM and JNMT offer a more visual, user-friendly design, including graphical abstracts and issue highlights. Ahead of print articles are now more prominent, and important content, such as graphics and metrics, is more easily accessible. In addition, the sites offer better functionality for users, including coordinated log-in information for members of the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging.

JNM has also created new Facebook and Twitter accounts (@JournalofNucMed) to share articles as soon as they are available. The new sites will cover clinical investigations, basic science reports, invited perspectives, continuing education articles and more.

“The quality and quantity of research coming from the nuclear medicine and molecular imaging community is amazing,” said Johannes Czernin, MD, editor-in-chief of JNM, “and our goal is to share it as widely as possible. With the addition of these new features to JNM and JNMT, we will be able to more effectively reach people and promote the advances in our field.”

JNM ranks fourth in impact among 133 medical journals in the medical imaging category. Its impact factor of 7.887 is the highest ever in its 60-year history. Last year, the journal’s impact factor increased more than seven percent, from 7.354 (2018) to 7.887 (2019), with 26,844 citations total. Its immediacy index is 2.386, third highest in the category. Among nuclear medicine journals, JNM has the highest total citations, five-year impact factor, immediacy index, Eigenfactor score and article influence score.
