SBI, Oxford University Press partner to publish new peer-reviewed breast imaging journal

The Society of Breast Imaging (SBI) and Oxford University Press (OUP) announced Wednesday, Oct. 10, that they are partnering to publish a new peer-reviewed journal focused on breast imaging, the Journal of Breast Imaging (JBI).

JBI will publish original research and reviews of “important scientific, educational and clinical topics.” The journal’s editor-in-chief will be Jennifer A. Harvey, MD.

“It’s an honor to oversee the launch of JBI,” Harvey said in a prepared statement. “The journal will provide a focused platform to disseminate scholarly work, as well as practical articles on breast cancer screening, clinical practice aspects of breast imaging, and educational opportunities, with the goal of advancing the global field of breast imaging for the betterment of patient care.”

“Despite the importance of breast imaging in the lives of countless women—and more than a few men—physicians and scientists seeking new information about the science and clinical practice of breast imaging have had to rely on the relatively few studies found in general interest journals,” Jay A. Baker, MD, SBI’s president, said in the same statement. “As the official journal of the Society of Breast Imaging, JBI solves this problem by providing a home for the latest research and clinical guidance for those who practice and those who study all facets of breast imaging.”
