  • Reports current knowledge and information on disorders of the musculoskeletal system including the spine
  • Takes an interdisciplinary approach, giving due consideration to a variety of aspects of the skeleton
  • Journal of the International Skeletal Society and the Official Journal of the SSR and AMSIG
  • 98% of authors who answered a survey reported that they would definitely publish or probably publish in the journal again

Skeletal Radiology provides a forum for the dissemination of current knowledge and information dealing with disorders of the musculoskeletal system including the spine. While emphasizing the radiological aspects of the many varied skeletal abnormalities, the journal also adopts an interdisciplinary approach, reflecting the membership of the International Skeletal Society. Thus, the anatomical, pathological, physiological, clinical, metabolic and epidemiological aspects of the many entities affecting the skeleton receive appropriate consideration.

This is the Journal of the International Skeletal Society and the Official Journal of the Society of Skeletal Radiology and the Australasian Musculoskelelal Imaging Group.

    Aims and Scope


    Skeletal Radiology, the Journal of the International Skeletal Society, and the Official Journal of the Society of Skeletal Radiology and the Australasian Musculoskeletal Imaging Group, serves as a forum for the dissemination of current knowledge and information dealing with disorders of the musculoskeletal system including the spine. Although the radiological aspects are emphasized, the journal adopts an interdisciplinary approach. Thus, the anatomical, pathological, physiological, clinical, metabolic and epidemiological aspects of the many entities affecting the musculoskeletal system each receive appropriate consideration.

    The journal publishes several different types of material. Carefully selected case reports are chosen because they illuminate new aspects of known entities, or because they are the earliest evidence of potential new entities. Case reports that include histological sections are favored, and a bibliography of the important references is always expected. Many, but by no means all, of the cases published are selected from the material presented at the annual meetings of the International Skeletal Society. Nonmembers are encouraged to send such cases for editorial consideration.

    Scientific articles are selected by the editors-in-chief with the input of a distinguished board of reviewers and editorial consultants, international in scope, representing multiple disciplines concerned with disorders of the bones, joints and soft tissues. Although emphasis is placed on manuscripts related to diagnostic imaging, articles submitted in other disciplines related to the musculoskeletal system are also encouraged.

    Most issues of the journal contain one or more scholarly review articles that are intended to condense, clarify and summarize an area of study that has undergone recent change or advances. Review articles in Skeletal Radiology differ in this way from purely educational material such as might be found in a textbook. Submissions of review articles are welcomed. The editors may occasionally solicit this type of article from noted authorities.


    The Journal also publishes “Test Yourself” cases in which a diagnostic dilemma is presented.  Readers are invited to think of a diagnosis, and the answer is provided, followed by a discussion.  


    Rounding out the list are a few subjective opinion pieces published as “Perspectives” and “Browsers Notes” and a very small number of carefully selected letters to the Editor.
