Los Angeles, London, New Delhi, Singapore and Washington DC (October 13, 2009) The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) has partnered with SAGE to publish the Aesthetic Surgery Journal (ASJ) beginning in 2010. A peer-reviewed international journal indexed in MEDLINE/PubMed, ASJ focuses on scientific developments and clinical techniques in aesthetic surgery.

ASJ is an official publication of the 2400-member ASAPS and is the official English-language journal of eleven major international societies of plastic, aesthetic and reconstructive surgery from South America, Central America, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. It is also an official journal of The Rhinoplasty Society.

"The selection of SAGE as our publishing partner will help facilitate the wider dissemination of ASJ content," said Foad Nahai, MD, Editor -in-Chief of ASJ. "We are confident that SAGE can meet all aspects of the journal's needs, especially with regard to quality control, international marketing and distribution, and enhancement of the journal's electronic publishing capabilities."

ASJ features original research and review articles on topics relevant to the safe and effective practice of aesthetic surgery including anatomical studies, outcomes of clinical techniques, and patient safety. ASJ also includes Continuing Medical Education (CME) articles and exams.

"SAGE is very pleased to have been chosen as the ASAPS' publishing partner for their prestigious and widely-read journal," said Jayne Marks, SAGE Vice-President and Editorial Director, Journals. "The Aesthetic Surgery Journal is an important addition not just to our growing list of science, technology and medicine journals, but also to the depth of our society publishing program."
