Good call for Springer to keep the content open to all!!
Journal of Digital Imaging: Open Source Articles
all the content is open to all...
Linux Medical News: "The Society of Imaging Informatics in Medicine recently released a special edition of the Journal of Digital Imaging focused on open source. While they are published in Springer, all the
articles on major open source packages in imaging informatics are open access. SIIM saw it fitting that open source articles shouldn't be locked into a proprietary publisher."
interesting, the first abstract:
Abstract The open source community within radiology is a vibrant collection of developers and users working on scores of collaborative projects with the goal of promoting the use of information technology within radiology for education, clinical, and research purposes. This community, which includes many commercial partners, has a rich history in supporting the success of the digital imaging and communication in medicine (DICOM) standard and today is pioneering interoperability limits by embracing the Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise. This article describes only a small portion of the more successful open source applications and is written to help end users see these projects as practical aids for the imaging informaticist and picture archiving and communication system (PACS) administrator.
