About this Book

eMagRes, previously published as the Encyclopedia of Magnetic Resonance

eMagRes captures every aspect of the interdisciplinary nature of magnetic resonance and provides the most complete and up-to-date online reference resource in the field. Currently eMagRes has published over 1,100 articles written by more than 1,250 experts in the field.

eMagRes, previously published as Encyclopedia of Magnetic Resonance (EMR), presents the content in two ways. Firstly, the articles are organised alphabetically by topic, under the top-level headings of MRI and NMR . Secondly, articles are arranged chronologically: from 2012 onwards in Volumes and Issues, and prior to 2012 in annual supplements.

eMagRes is edited by leaders in the field, ensuring high quality, relevance, and topicality. For MRI content William G. Bradley, John R. Griffiths and Ian R. Young are responsible. For NMR and related areas Robin K. Harris and Roderick E. Wasylishen lead an editorial team consisting of Edwin D. Becker, Melinda J. Duer, Bernard C. Gerstein, George Gray, Ann E. McDermott, Gareth A. Morris and Tatyana Polenova. The Editors are supported by a global Advisory Board with leading experts from all fields of magnetic resonance.

Since the original print publication of Encyclopedia of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance in 1996, the area of magnetic resonance has seen extensive developments and now encompasses a whole range of techniques, including MRI, MRS, NMR and ESR. eMagRes covers all the essential information on the science, methodologies, engineering, technologies, applications and the history of magnetic resonance. The quarterly addition of new articles and updates of existing articles ensures that eMagRes remains the most comprehensive, up-to-date reference in the field.

NMR and MRI have developed into two very different research and application areas with their own dynamic development. eMagRes addresses this development by presenting the content as two separate topics. Readers can browse through the extensive lists of either the NMR topics or the MRI topics. Where articles refer to content in the other topic area, readers can easily switch between the topics if they wish to do so.

The articles on the history of NMR and MRI span the development of magnetic resonance from the 1940’s to the latest developments. Science is driven by people and therefore “Personal Accounts” articles give some personal flavours and insights into research and engineering methods going on in this field. The Editor responsible for the historical aspects of eMagRes, Edwin D. Becker, has chosen another 73 new researchers and invited them to contribute their Perspectives, so that eMagRes now presents a total of 276 Personal Accounts. These “historical” articles add a very personal touch to the factual articles and make eMagRes a useful resource far beyond the interests of NMR and MRI specialists.

eMagRes is also the source of a unique series of print and e-books, containing articles carefully selected and commissioned for more focussed, specific readerships within the MRI and NMR communities. For further information see eMagRes Publications.

eMagRes is a part of a wide range of products published by Wiley. For links to some other key products in the field of magnetic resonance see Related Products.


Biologists, Chemists, Materials Scientists and Physicists use NMR in a wide range of applications for atomic and molecular structure determination. The NMR section of eMagRes presents a wide range of articles on the science, technology, methodologies and applications in areas such as proteins, polymers, materials and molecules.

Retirement of Professor Robin Harris

At the end of 2013 Professor Robin Harris will retire from his position as co-Editor in Chief of eMagRes. The eMagRes team at Wiley are enormously grateful for the time and effort that Robin has put into the publication over the years; it has been an honour to work with an Editor who is so enthusiastic about the publication.
