Highly ranked among journals in its field, the European Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging provides a forum for the exchange of clinical and scientific information for the nuclear medicine community and allied professions involved in the functional, metabolic and molecular investigation of disease.

The journal remains of primary interest to practitioners in the field of nuclear medicine but also reports on original work relating to physics, dosimetry, radiation biology, radiochemistry and pharmacy. Original material examines the field of molecular imaging probes, reporter gene assays, cell trafficking, targeting of endogenous gene expression and antisense methodologies. The Journal publishes in-depth reviews of topical interest, short communications, controversies, interesting images and letters to the Editor.

This is the official journal of the European Association of Nuclear Medicine (EANM). EANM members are entitled to access the full-text electronic version of the journal via the society's website www.eanm.org in the restricted members' area.

Peer review is conducted using Editorial Manager®, supported by a database of international experts. This database is shared with the journals EJNMMI Physics, EJNMMI Research, EJNMMI Radiopharmacy and Chemistry, and the European Journal of Hybrid Imaging.

EJNMMI is part of the EJNMMI journal family. Further details can be found at https://www.springeropen.com/p/nuclear-medicine including the winners of the Annual EANM Springer Award.
