About the Journal of Ultrasound in Medicine


The Journal of Ultrasound in Medicine (JUM) is dedicated to the rapid, accurate publication of original articles dealing with all aspects of medical ultrasound, particularly its direct application to patient care but also relevant basic science, advances in instrumentation, and biological effects. The journal is an official publication of the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine and publishes articles in a variety of categories, including Original Research papers, Review Articles, Pictorial Essays, Technical Innovations, Case Series, Letters to the Editor, and more, from an international bevy of countries in a continual effort to showcase and promote advances in the ultrasound community.

Represented through these efforts are a wide variety of disciplines of ultrasound, including, but not limited to:

  • Basic science
  • Breast ultrasound
  • Emergency medicine
  • Gastrointestinal ultrasound
  • General ultrasound
  • Genitourinary ultrasound
  • Gynecologic ultrasound
  • Musculoskeletal ultrasound
  • Obstetric ultrasound
  • Ophthalmologic ultrasound
  • Pediatric ultrasound
  • Point-of-care ultrasound
  • Public policy
  • Superficial structures
  • Urologic ultrasound
  • Vascular ultrasound

As an added resource, each issue provides readers with opportunities to earn continuing medical education credits by completing tests at the end of select articles.

The JUM has increased in scope with each year and over the past decade has seen the number of manuscripts submitted for consideration nearly double while still maintaining the rigorous standards that ensure the highest quality of research presentation for subscribers. This begins with the expedient but meticulous selection process, led by Editor-in-Chief Levon N. Nazarian, MD. The process lasts on average of 25 days from article submission to first decision, around 65 days for acceptance, and approximately 6 months until publication in the JUM.

Additional facts about the journal:

  • In 2012, 874 papers were submitted for review.
  • The acceptance rate is 31%.
  • Original Research articles constitute 60% of the total papers submitted.
  • Articles older than 12 months are available to everyone at no charge online. Current issues of the journal online are only available to AIUM members.
