Magnetic Resonance Materials in Physics, Biology and Medicine (MAGMA) is a multidisciplinary international journal that publishes articles on all aspects of magnetic resonance techniques and their applications in medicine and biology. MAGMA currently presents research papers, reviews, letters to the editor, and commentaries, six times a year.

The subject areas covered by MAGMA include advances in materials, hardware and software in magnetic resonance technology; new developments and results in research and practical applications of magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy related to biology and medicine; study of animal models and intact cells and reports of clinical trials on humans and clinical validation of magnetic resonance protocols.

A particular feature of MAGMA is its special issues. These normally appear once a year, and are devoted to a current hot topic in MRI, with guest editors selected from those active in the chosen field of research.

  • COVID-19 and impact on peer review

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
