American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons announces official open access journal

December 05, 2016

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS), a global leader in orthopaedic surgical education, is announcing the forthcoming launch of JAAOS: Global Research & Reviews. The new online-only journal will serve as an open access companion title to the most read* journal by orthopaedic surgeons, Journal of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (JAAOS).

"The AAOS has been committed to providing excellence in orthopaedic education on the world stage for many years, and the demand for AAOS products and services on an international level continues to grow. We have dozens of agents and distributors in more than 85 countries representing AAOS," said AAOS President Gerald R. Williams Jr., MD. "JAAOS Global Research & Reviews is a natural extension of our efforts. While encouraging submissions from everywhere, the journal will place a particular emphasis on content that originates outside North America, and on articles that may be especially of interest to international readers."

JAAOS: Global Research & Reviews will critically evaluate and synthesize up-to-date information on the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions, reflecting the current state of orthopaedic practice and patient care. The journal intends to publish review articles, research articles and clinical trials, surgical techniques, case reports, and commentary for the benefit of orthopaedic surgeons at all levels of their careers, from residency on, as well as orthopaedic researchers and healthcare professionals with an interest in orthopaedics.

The journal will be under the leadership of William N. Levine, MD., Editor-in-Chief, Jeffrey S. Fischgrund, MD., Research Editor, and the entire editorial board of JAAOS. All submitted manuscripts will undergo the same rigorous peer review and strong ethical standards which have helped maintain the standing of JAAOS as a top world journal in orthopaedics#.

"Our new journal is an excellent opportunity for authors worldwide to have their papers published in an AAOS journal," said Dr. Fischgrund. "JAAOS Global Research & Reviews will publish high-quality original research and review articles monthly and the open access format allows all medical professionals with internet access to read and learn from respected authors around the globe."

Dispatch 6: Strange Times
Covid has disrupted the most basic routines of our days and nights. But in the middle of a conversation about how to fight the virus, we find a place impervious to the stalled plans and frenetic demands of the outside world. It's a very different kind of front line, where urgent work means moving slow, and time is marked out in tiny pre-planned steps. Then, on a walk through the woods, we consider how the tempo of our lives affects our minds and discover how the beats of biology shape our bodies.
