JBMR® Plus, published by the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research, is a new international, open access peer-reviewed journal that will publish original research on all aspects of bone and musculoskeletal research.
The journal is now accepting submissions!
JBMR® Plus will publish 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 will welcome 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 will also be 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 allows us to make JBMR® Plus a rapidly responsive and innovative home for new discoveries that will ultimately improve global musculoskeletal health.
All articles in JBMR® Plus will be published under the Creative Commons (CC-BY and CC-BY-NC-ND) licenses on Wiley Online Library. Authors with open access mandates from funders will be fully compliant when publishing with this journal.
“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, will also be well served by JBMR® Plus,” said Peter Ebeling, Editor-in-Chief.
