The Journal of Breast Imaging (JBI):
The Official Journal of SBI
Journal of Breast Imaging Seeks New Editor-in-Chief
SBI is seeking applicants for the next Editor-in-Chief (EiC) of the Journal of Breast Imaging (JBI). The next EiC will serve an initial term of 5 years beginning as soon as possible to train alongside the interim EiC, Jay Baker, MD. SBI has appointed an Editor Search Committee to assist with the search. The Committee will bring their recommendation to the SBI Board of Directors who will select and appoint the new EiC in the coming months.
This is an exciting time for SBI and the Journal. In 2023, JBI received its first Journal Impact Factor and was accepted for inclusion in MEDLINE/PubMed. These milestones are indicative of JBI’s high quality content as the only peer-reviewed journal dedicated to breast imaging. The EiC sets the editorial direction and has final authority for the selection and quality of all content published in JBI. The EiC oversees peer-review of all manuscripts and is responsible for structuring and overseeing the performance of the JBI’s Editorial Board.
The EiC will be supported by a new Deputy Editor (to be named with input of the EiC), a team of Associate Editors, the managing editor, and the publisher. Although the journal never sleeps and there are regular daily tasks, SBI expects the EiC to commit approximately one day per week of protected time to JBI. The SBI will provide a stipend or honorarium to the EiC or their institution commensurate with this effort.
Interested candidates may apply by emailing their curriculum vitae and a letter of interest summarizing their qualifications and describing their vision for JBI. Send applications to JBIeditorsearch@gmail.com by Friday, March 1, 2024.

Tips for Authors
All JBI submissions are peer-reviewed and acceptance is not guaranteed.
- Submissions should be made through JBI’s ScholarOne site at https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/jbri.
- You must register in order to submit a manuscript. Please follow the instructions to “create an account” which will require you to include or register for an ORCID ID.
- Please read our Instructions for Authors on the Submit a New Manuscript page before submitting your work.
- Once your article is published, read the Journal of Breast Imaging Author Resource Guide for tips on how to increase your article's impact and exposure.
JBI has a streamlined process designed to avoid unnecessary work when submitting a manuscript. Manuscripts can be submitted in any common document format that can be easily opened and read by others. A single PDF or Word file is usually reliable. At first submission, it is not necessary to apply formatting to match journal style. Instead, simply ask: would I enjoy reading and reviewing a manuscript formatted in this way? You will still need to comply with the requirements and limitations of the selected article type, such as word count or maximum references, and ensure your figures are of sufficient quality to allow effective peer review.
If you have any questions or need assistance during the submission process, please contact James Butler, Managing Editor, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 919-650-1459.
We hope you will consider publishing your work in JBI. Your knowledge and expertise as a breast imaging radiologist will contribute to the advancement of our specialty and be a service to your colleagues.
