How to publish in this journal


The aim of Theranostics is to provide a forum for the exchange of clinical and scientific information for the diagnostic and therapeutic molecular and nano medicine community and allied professions involved in the efforts of integrating molecular imaging and molecular therapy. Theranostics is a multidisciplinary journal that publishes innovative and original research articles reflecting fields of in vitro diagnostics and prognostics, in vivo molecular imaging, molecular therapeutics, image-guided therapy, biosensor, nanobiosensor and bioelectronics, system biology and translational medicine, point-of-care and personalized medicine. A broad spectrum of biomedical research that can be applied to future theranostic applications is encouraged. In addition to primary research, Theranostics also publishes reviews, news, and commentary to understand and bridge the gap among the laboratory, clinic, and biotechnology industries. Papers in the journal are rigorously peer-reviewed. Join the conversation about this journal

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Total Documents

Evolution of the number of published documents. All types of documents are considered, including citable and non citable documents.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.

Cites per Doc

Evolution of the number of total citation per document and external citation per document (i.e. journal self-citations removed) received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years. External citations are calculated by subtracting the number of self-citations from the total number of citations received by the journal’s documents.
