Springer and the WINFOCUS Society are founding a new publication, the Critical Ultrasound Journal. This international, peer-reviewed journal will serve as the official publication of WINFOCUS (World Interactive Network Focused on Critical UltraSound).
Volume 1, Number 1, will be published in October 2009.
The Critical Ultrasound Journal is designed for clinicians and health professionals using point-of-care ultrasound for possible critical decisions, interventions or diagnoses. It intends to reach clinical practitioners and scientists interested in broadening their knowledge in the fields of ultrasound practice, research, education, technology and networking. Addressing the global needs of patients, institutions, and communities living in out-of-hospital and in-hospital critical scenarios, the journal will publish reviews, original articles, short communications and case reports. Professor Michael Blaivas, editor-in-chief, will be supported by a global team of experts.
Critical Ultrasound Journal will be published quarterly at Springer both in print and electronically on Springer’s online information platform http://www.springerlink.com. The journal will include Online First™, Cross Reference Linking, and Alert services. All Critical Ultrasound Journal authors, via the Springer Open Choice™ program, will have the option of publishing their articles using the open access publishing model.
