Printed version discontinued

We would like to kindly inform you that since January 2021 European Radiology will be published as an online-only journal.

The vast majority of European Radiology readers access our articles exclusively online and we have noticed a decrease in the demand for the printed edition. In addition, the (non-)sustainability of printing scientific journals has become a growing issue needing to be addressed. Therefore, the ESR leadership decided to cease the monthly print issues of European Radiology at the end of 2020.

Nevertheless, active members of the ESR have free unlimited electronic access to European Radiology via their myUserArea.
