Journal Scope

Aims and Scope

The World Journal of Nuclear Medicine (WJNM) is a quarterly peer-reviewed international journal published in collaboration with the World Association of Radiopharmaceutical and Molecular Therapy (WARMTH). WARMTH is the only worldwide organization founded to promote the use of radionuclide molecular therapy, and of the relatively novel paradigm of ‘Theragnostics.’ WARMTH is an incorporated charity, registered in the United States of America. WARMTH encourages the use of radionuclide therapy to reduce human disease with a particular emphasis in delivery of that care in the developing world. There is a common desire to educate and share knowledge across both developed and developing nations. WARMTH has no editorial control over the WJNM, but its governing board appoints the Editor in Chief and provides financial support. For more information, please visit the website here.
