Introduction to the special issue on celebrating the 15th anniversary of JIOHS and the 70th anniversary of HUST


Since launching in 2008, Journal of Innovative Optical Health Sciences (JIOHS) has been published for 15 years until 2022. Supported by the founding advisor Prof. Britton Chance and other founding Editorial Members, JIOHS was quickly embraced by the biomedical optics community, especially in Asia. Authors submitted some of their high quality papers to JIOHS, which led to a constant Impact Factor (IF) increase from the first IF 0.632 to IF 2.396 (Journal Citation Report 2021). JIOHS is now one of the most important journals in the field of biomedical optics and biophotonics. The year 2022 is the 15th Anniversary of JIOHS and also the 70th Anniversary of Huazhong University of Science & Technology (HUST). Naturally, organizing a special issue is certainly the most important way to celebrate these two anniversaries. A brief history of the development of biophotonics and biomedical optics at HUST, associated with the formation of the journal and the development of international relations, including through the regular organization of the international conference PIBM and the Chinese-Russian Workshops, is presented in the photos. This special issue on Celebrating the 15th Anniversary of JIOHS and the 70th Anniversary of HUST consists of eight invited and two regular articles. Among them, nine articles are published in January 2023 issue, while the paper from Wei R Chen will be available in the next issue. All these articles are dedicated to highlighting the latest developments in the fields of biomedical optics and biophotonics.
