JBMR® Plus, published by the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research, is a monthly international, open access peer-reviewed journal that publishes original research on all aspects of bone and musculoskeletal research accepting submissions. In 2023, JBMR® Plus had an impact factor of 3.8.
JBMR® Plus publishes original research, reviews, detailed protocols and methods, and special articles in basic, translational, and clinical science relevant to bone, musculoskeletal metabolism and regenerative medicine research. It welcomes research on osteoimmunology as well as research on fat, muscle, cartilage and kidney interactions with bone. Clinical studies, including trials and observational studies, and epidemiology and pharmacoepidemiology studies are encouraged. JBMR® Plus also welcomes manuscripts on orthopedics, stem cell therapies, specialized biomechanics protocols, novel imaging techniques and big data.
As a sister Journal to ASBMR’s flagship subscription journal, the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research (JBMR®), JBMR® Plus is able to access a remarkable pool of experienced, expert reviewers who have made JBMR® the most highly regarded international Journal in bone and mineral research. Such support has made JBMR® Plus a rapidly responsive and innovative home for new discoveries that will ultimately improve global musculoskeletal health.

“JBMR® Plus aims to accelerate the research into bone biology that has underpinned the recent innovative and targeted therapeutic advances in bone and mineral and musculoskeletal research. The NIH-mandated needs for reproducibility and excellence in study design, as well as those for open access, are well served by JBMR® Plus,” said Peter Ebeling, past Editor-in-Chief.
