ASBMR Abstract Center is Open for Late-Breaking Research! Submissions Due Next Wednesday, June 5!

With the fast pace of modern biomedical research, ASBMR recognizes that late-breaking findings of broad and exceptional importance may occur after our initial abstract deadline has passed, and that conclusions and data from important clinical trials may not have been available.  In order to present the most current research in the bone, mineral and musculoskeletal field, ASBMR extends an invitation to scientists in all sectors to submit abstracts on clinical, basic and translational subjects that describe novel, groundbreaking research findings of the highest scientific impact. The deadline for late-breaking abstract submissions is Wednesday, June 5, 2019. Click here for more information!


New Guidelines for Articles on Genomics in JBMR® and JBMR® Plus

New guidelines for the Genetic and Functional -Omics Studies in Cells, Animals, and Humans have been developed to support the ASBMR journals’ commitment for increasing transparency in research, and to clarify the data sharing policy and assist authors. These guidelines are provided for studies investigating DNA variants in relation to phenotypes of the musculoskeletal system and mineral metabolism. These guidelines may be applicable to other forms of –omic studies focusing on the transcriptome, epigenome, metabolome, and/or proteome. Please click here to read the full Genetic and Functional -Omics Studies in Cells, Animals, and Humans guidelines. The Publications Committee thanks the Working Group members for their update: David Karasik, Ph.D., Chair; Fernando Rivadeneira, M.D., Ph.D.; Doug Kiel, M.D., M.P.H.; Charles Farber, Ph.D.; Cheryl Ackert-Bicknell, Ph.D.; Michael Mannstadt, M.D.; Roberto Civitelli, M.D.; and Peter Ebeling, M.D..
