The Journal of Biomedical Optics (JBO), published by SPIE since 1996, will double its publication frequency to monthly publication in January.

The change will enable the journal to continue the steady growth in size and impact it has seen since its launch as a quarterly, and to better manage the increasing number of submissions, according to editor-in-chief Lihong Wang of Washington University of St. Louis, USA, who said: 'The growth of the journal is in line with the growth of the field of biomedical optics.'

Articles are published individually in the SPIE Digital Library as soon as they are accepted, copyedited, and typeset, and are collected in issues for archiving and print distribution. All JBO Letters are open access immediately on publication, and a new programme of one-year deferred open access for JBO papers for which authors have paid voluntary publication charges has been instituted.
