Although it was a slight decrease from the previous year 1.793, JBB has gained significant attention from scientists in the world, especially in Asia. We received over 750 submissions in 2012. We would like to thank all authors for their contributions.

The quality of the articles published in JBB is dependent on peer-reviews. We appreciate voluntary reviews by dedicated editors and reviewers.
