Journal of Biomedical Optics • Open AccessJBO Setting New Records
2011 was another record year for JBO. The number of manuscript submissions reached nearly 750. The impact factor leaped to 3.188, with the 5-year combined impact factor at 3.659. The publication frequency changed to monthly starting in January. The manuscript review cycles have been shortened considerably without sacrificing quality of review. JBO is deeply indebted to the authors, reviewers, and editorial board members for their contributions to such marvelous achievements.
