Aims and scope
The Ultrasound Journal is an international, peer-reviewed journal designed for clinicians using point-of-care ultrasound in any environment or setting. The Ultrasound Journal is the official publication of WINFOCUS (World Interactive Network Focused on Critical UltraSound), the world's leading scientific organization committed to developing point-of-care ultrasound practice, research, education, technology and networking and addressing the global needs of patients, institutions, services and communities living in out-of-hospital and in-hospital critical scenarios. The journal publishes editorials, reviews, original articles, short communications and case reports and is open for publication of supplements and abstracts of scientific meetings. By reaching audiences around the world, it plays a key role in bringing ultrasound to the patient's bedside, where this technique can make the greatest difference. The journal considers manuscripts within the fields of human health and it is open to contributions on the usefulness of ultrasound in animal care.
Requirements and guidelines for submission of papers can be obtained from the publisher.
The publication costs for the articles published in The Ultrasound Journal are partially sponsored by the World Interactive Network Focused on Critical UltraSound (WINFOCUS), so Society members do not need to pay the article-processing charge following acceptance of their manuscript. The Editorial Board acts independently of the sponsoring support. Each submitted article undergoes peer review following the common established editorial and ethical standards in publishing.
The Ultrasound Journal is affiliated with the World Interactive Network Focused on Critical UltraSound (WINFOCUS)
