The hard copy of February 2019 issue has reached all of us with this much adored statement on the cover “SCOPUS”. We received an official notice from Elsevier with the news that the “Journal of Bone Metabolism (JBM) was selected for coverage in SCOPUS” and this indexing came with the retrospective effect beginning with Volume 23, Issue 3, of 2016.

The JBM has been revised into an English language journal starting in November 2012. It has been indexed in PubMed Central and PubMed through the 2012 issues and JBM is also indexed in KoreaMed, Synapse, KoMCI, CrossRef, and Google Scholar. These ongoing successive achievements were made possible by members, authors, and readers.

We deeply appreciate the highly erudite and committed editorial board members; strict and responsive reviewers; proficient publishers; and extremely supportive executive committee of the Korean Society for Bone and Mineral Research.

After the announcement of this accomplishment, a significant uptick in the amount of articles submitted to the JBM system is expected. The JBM welcomes the submission of manuscripts from any country. We hope to receive the help and cooperation of our readers, reviewers, advisors, and committee members as before to take this heritage journal from Korea to the next level of excellence (Science Citation Index Extended).
