How to publish in this journal


The International Journal for Computer Assisted Radiology and Surgery (IJCARS) is a peer-reviewed journal to provide a platform closing the gap between medical and technical disciplines and to encourage interdisciplinary research and development activities in an international environment. The focus of the journal is on R&D areas relating to digital imaging methods and computer-assisted diagnostic and therapeutic workflows that match and enhance the skill levels of health care professionals. IJCARS invites submissions on topics in information sciences, ICT, and mechatronic systems design as well as clinical application fields such as: - Medical imaging, e.g. CT, MR, US, SPECT, PET, DR, molecular imaging, and virtual endoscopy - Image processing and display - 3D, 4D, and 5D imaging - Hospital-wide PACS and telemedicine - Computer applications for e.g. neurosurgery, head and neck, orthopaedics, ear nose and throat, cardiovascular and thoracoabdominal surgery, and plastic/reconstructive surgery - Image-guided therapy - Surgical robotics and instrumentation - Surgical navigation - 3D modeling and rapid prototyping - Postoperative result assessment - Surgical education and training - Haptics and multimodal devices in medical applications - Methods of validation and verification - CAD for breast, prostate, chest, colon, skeletal, liver, brain, and vascular imaging - Cranial and maxillofacial image-guided surgery - Surgical workflow - Surgical DICOM and IHE - Digital operating room 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.
