Important Update: JUM Transitions to Digital-Only in 2024
The Journal of Ultrasound in Medicine (JUM) is excited to announce that beginning with the January 2024 issue, the JUM will be digital-only. After careful consideration and discussion, we have decided to move away from print and embrace the benefits of digital publishing. Access the JUM online now.

The 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. This peer-reviewed journal is an official publication of the AIUM. All AIUM members receive free access to the entire JUM library as well as the latest published articles.


To access the JUM, AIUM members must first log into their account. You can do that here. Once logged in, simply click on the Journal button in the upper right-hand section of the AIUM web site.

Every 2 weeks, all AIUM members receive JUMpstart, an electronic publication dedicated to sharing the latest in ultrasound research. The goal of this valuable publication is to increase the speed at which new techniques, research, and information are shared and moved into clinical practice. The most recently published articles are always available in Early View.

Become a Reviewer

The JUM is a peer-reviewed journal which means every published article has been vetted and critiqued by ultrasound experts. If you would like to help ensure the JUM only publishes quality research and information, consider becoming a reviewer. Manuscript reviewers are also eligible to receive CME credit. To become a reviewer, simply visit  https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/jum to set up your profile. Your information will be added to the list of potential reviewers. If you are particularly eager to review articles, set up your account and then email us at reviewer@aium.org and we will follow up with additional information.

To submit a manuscript to the JUM, start here by creating an account. The submission wizard will walk you through the necessary steps. Please make sure you read the author guidelines prior to beginning your submission.

Official Proceedings

Showcasing and publishing abstracts is a vital aspect of moving research into clinical practice. Each year, the AIUM hosts an event where research is presented, shared, and discussed. The presented abstracts are published in the JUM–usually in July of each year. You can find past Proceedings here.
