Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery and Research
Publisher: BioMed Central
Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery and Research is the official journal of the
Chinese Speaking Orthopaedic Society.
Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery and Research is an open access, peer-reviewed
online journal that will encompass all aspects of clinical and basic
research studies related to musculoskeletal issues.
Orthopaedic research is conducted essentially at clinical and basic science
levels. With the advancement of new technologies and the increasing
expectation and demand from doctors and patients, we are witnessing an
enormous growth in clinical orthopaedic research, particularly in the fields
of traumatology, spinal surgery, joint replacement, sports medicine,
musculoskeletal tumour management, hand microsurgery, foot and ankle
surgery, paediatric orthopaedic, and orthopaedic rehabilitation.
The involvement of basic science ranges from molecular, cellular, structural
and functional perspectives to tissue engineering, gait analysis, automation
and robotic surgery. Implant and biomaterial designs are new disciplines
that will complement clinical applications. Multidisciplinary research with
collaboration amongst clinicians and scientists from different disciplines
will be the trend in the coming decades.
Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery and Research will provide the platform for
exchange of new clinical and scientific information in the most precise and
expeditious way to achieve timely dissemination of information and
cross-fertilization of ideas.
Manuscripts should be submitted electronically to Journal of Orthopaedic
Surgery and Research using the online submission system.
