JBMR Plus to Open for Submissions in January 2017
Date: December 15, 2016
The ASBMR and John Wiley and Sons, Inc. will launch in 2017 an international open access peer-reviewed publication, JBMR Plus. JBMR Plus joins ASBMR’s flagship subscription journal, Journal of Bone and Mineral Research® (JBMR), the top-ranked journal in the field of bone, mineral and musculoskeletal research, as the favored venue for publishing original research on all aspects of bone and musculoskeletal research through open access publication.
JBMR Plus aims to fill a need in the growing interdisciplinary field of research involving endocrinology, orthopedics, and rheumatology. 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. The journal 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.
The journal will begin accepting submissions in January 2017 and plans to publish the first issue online in summer 2017. For more information, visit http://www.asbmr.org/JBMRPlus.
