Wolters Kluwer, a leading global provider of information and point of care solutions for the healthcare industry, and The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS), the global leader in orthopaedic surgical education, announce the launch of the AAOS’s official open access journal, JAAOS: Global Research & Reviews. The journal will serve as the 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 management 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 the world’s top 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."
JAAOS: Global Research & Reviews is now open for manuscript submissions as of today. For more information, please visit: www.editorialmanager.com/jaaosglobal.
