Journal Updates – March 2021

MRS Narratives format now open for submissions!

The format is for anyone with something to share related to any aspect of medical imaging and radiation therapy, including patients, families, health care leaders, policy makers, and MRTs. Submissions are not restricted to any particular format—we are open to personal stories, poems, photographic essays, or any other method that can communicate your narrative. We hope that this new format will attract submissions from diverse voices, from authors who are Black, Indigenous or People of Colour; from patients; or from our own readership whose submissions may not fit into the traditional model of research dissemination. Author instructions are at, including a “Steps to Submit” document for new authors, and links to published examples.
