JBO sustained its healthy growth in 2012. The number of manuscript submissions increased by 5% to 788. JBO’s success is attributed to the contributions of the authors, reviewers, guest editors, and editorial board members.

The following authors contributed invaluable review articles, which have been granted online open access by SPIE immediately upon publication:
