Scope

The Journal of Biomedical Optics (JBO) is an open access journal that publishes peer-reviewed papers on innovations in optical systems and techniques that will improve health care and lead to discoveries in biomedical research. Growth in the capabilities of biomedical optical technology has fueled new areas of contrast, resolution, and spectral capacity in imaging and sensing, which have enabled widespread applications throughout biology and medicine. Topics suitable for JBO include significant in-depth studies of: fundamentally new discoveries in biomedical optical devices for imaging or sensing using: optical spectroscopy, near infrared spectroscopy, photoacoustics, microscopy, optical coherence, tomography, fluorescence, phosphorescence, elastography, hyperspectral, using features unique to optics such as spatial, spectral, temporal, interference, polarization, or quantum nature; increasing knowledge of light-tissue interaction, through theoretical transport models such as Monte Carlo, diffusion, electromagnetic and empirical methods, and through physical methods to model light–tissue interactions such as tissue-simulating phantoms; computational advances in optical image and signal processing, and image reconstruction, including new methods in machine learning and artificial intelligence that improve insight into the utility, detection, or performance value; novel medical optical systems used in definitive animal or human studies or clinical trial testing that can impact the field by their design or the optical innovation, including discoveries and technical advances in optics emerging from mobile, remote, wearable, or implantable technologies that can improve health and wellness; discoveries in photonics, nanophotonics, plasmonics, biosensors, and optical reporters that have direct relevance to biomedical needs or utility;...etc. Join the conversation about this journal
Quartiles

The set of journals have been ranked according to their SJR and divided into four equal groups, four quartiles. Q1 (green) comprises the quarter of the journals with the highest values, Q2 (yellow) the second highest values, Q3 (orange) the third highest values and Q4 (red) the lowest values.

SJR

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.

Cites per Doc

Evolution of the number of total citation per document and external citation per document (i.e. journal self-citations removed) received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years. External citations are calculated by subtracting the number of self-citations from the total number of citations received by the journal’s documents.
