JACR Call for Papers: Data, Distilled

Radiology literature collected, filtered, and encapsulated

JACR Call for Papers Graphic

JACR is accepting proposals for original systematic reviews and meta-analyses on topics important to our specialty.

The sheer quantity of available data can represent a challenge for busy radiologists; it is even harder when the published research is of variable quality or have conflicting conclusions.

Research synthesis aims to increase the generalizability and applicability of existing data through a transparent and reproducible process of searching, appraising, synthesizing, and interpreting published studies related to a specific question. Important new knowledge is often discovered through this process. The JACR is seeking submissions for these highly useful and impactful articles with this ongoing series.

Successful submissions should seek to answer a previously unanswered and clinically/practice-relevant question through a systematic review and meta-analysis (if warranted) of the published literature. Submissions should address topics pertaining to:

  • Clinical practice management
  • Health services and policy research
  • Training and education
  • Leadership
  • Data science
