Asian Journal of Arthroscopy (ISSN: 2456-1169)
Publisher: Indian Orthopaedic Research Group
IF(Impact Factor) : 2017 Evaluation Pending
DescriptionWelcome to the “Asian Journal of Arthroscopy” (AJA). This is a unique venture and the idea is to develop a single portal where all information regarding Arthroscopy can be found and shared.
Why the new Journal when there are already existing journals of Arthroscopy?
There are two main reasons; to produce a body of literature that is clinically relevant and to make this knowledge freely accessible to all. Journals have shown trend to move towards a more rigid framework of scientific publications, meanwhile losing the focus that the Journals are meant to directly influence and improve patient care. Charging for downloading articles imposes another limitation on dispersion and use of knowledge. AJA intends to counter these two issues by creating a journal that is intelligent, interactive, and clinically relevant and at the same time completely Open Access. The entire format of the Journal will be one of ‘Integration' with basic science, molecular research, clinical trials, clinical research, case based discussion, evidence based medicine, expert opinion and patients perspective, all aiming together to ‘Translate' into betterment of Arthroscopy strategies and surgeries.
The Journal will be open access, peer reviewed and will have three issues every year. It will be published in both online and print formats. The Journal will be official Arthroscopy Journal of the Orthopaedic Research Group and will be published by ResearchOne Publishing House. The Research Group has affiliation to Ebscohost and is a member of Crossref. Thus primarily the journal will be indexed with Ebscohost and will have a doi (digital object identifier) for each article. Within due course we aim to index the journal with all major indexes including Pubmed and Science citation index.
AJA will have special emphasis on the Asia- Pacific region but we will invite contributions from all across the globe.
What is different about AJA Journal?
Integration of Knowledge starting from basic science to clinical studies to provide a unique structural overview of the entire scenario of Joint disease and Arthroscopic surgery
Create Wisdom pool by combining Evidence Based Principles with Expertise and Experience. A section or whole issues will be dedicated to symposium related to Arthroscopy surgeries with invited articles, reviews and original work
Better Patient Care with inclusion of clinical relevance section to articles of AJA and Case Based discussions and debates.
Improve training and educational resources through online videos and ‘ArthroMedia'
The entire format of the Journal will be one of ‘Integration' with basic science, clinical trials, clinical research, case based discussion, evidence based medicine, expert opinion, Videos, keynote presentations and web resources, all aiming together to ‘Translate' into betterment of Arthroscopy strategies and surgeries.
