We are pleased to inform you of the launch of a new quarterly journal in medical robotics, namely: Journal of Medical Robotics Research (JMRR).

JMRR will be published by World Scientific Publishers (including Imperial College Press). JMRR invites fundamental scientific and technological contributions as well as clinical evaluation studies in several areas of medical robotics.

JMRR is not an open access journal. However, the publisher offers the authors open-access option, if the authors would like their papers to be freely available. JMRR submission site is now open and accepting regular papers, short papers, review papers, as well as video submissions. Accepted individual video submissions (those not accompanying a paper submission) by themselves will be published on the journal homepage.
