James C. Wadley, Editor-In-Chief and Founder of The JBSR, stated that "The journal gives national and international visibility to our scholars and their research and clinical efforts. Because it is the first and only journal that addresses the intersection of sexuality and race as it relates to persons of African descent, it has already garnered positive attention from the nation's most prestigious institutions."
