A core journal and essential reading for general as well as specialist orthopaedic surgeons worldwide, The Journal publishes evidence-based research to enhance the quality of care for orthopaedic patients.

Bi-Monthly Publication and Supplements

The Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery is published twice a month on the first and third Wednesday of each month. Embargo dates correspond to the publication date of the issue at 1:30 p.m. ET when they are posted electronically. JBJS supplements are published along with an issue and reflect the same embargo date and time of that issue.

Some articles appear online only and never appear in a printed issue of The Journal. However, these articles are assigned to an issue and do appear in the printed table of contents. Online only articles follow the same access controls and embargoes as those that appear in print. Online, www.jbjs.org, is the version of record.

Contributions from anywhere in the world are welcome and considered on their merits. The manuscript must be written in English and should be submitted as outlined in the Instructions to Authors. Manuscripts are subject to blinded peer review by experts and a final decision by the editor. Papers are judged by the quality and relevance of the work, not by the country of origin, the reputation of the author, or the fame of the department. Our aim is to publish the best material available from anywhere in the world.

A History of JBJS

The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery has its origin as the Transactions of the American Orthopedic Association. The first volume contained the proceedings of the meetings of 1887 and 1888. Volume XVI of the Transactions of the American Orthopedic Association is also Volume I of the American Journal of Orthopedic Surgery. In 1919, when The Journal also became the official publication of the British Orthopaedic Association, the word American was dropped from the title and orthopedic was changed to orthopaedic. That year's volume, the Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery, became Volume I (new series). The present title, The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, was adopted in 1922. In 1948, American (A) and British (B) volumes were established, however these volumes functioned independently of each other. The American Orthopaedic Association remained the owner of The Journal until 1954, when an independent non-profit corporation, The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, Inc., was established.  In 2013 the British Volume changed its name to the Bone and Joint Journal. The American Volume continues to be The Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery.

JBJS Case Connector

Connections & Trends in Orthopaedic Surgery

JBJS Case Connector assists orthopaedic surgeons in the search for precedents, connections, and trends in their efforts to improve patient care. Using this unique online journal, surgeons can find the commonalities between cases, benefit from the experience of their peers, and filter case information by many important variables in order to provide the best possible care for orthopaedic patients.

This cross-referenced electronic database contains thousands of orthopaedic case reports from the top journal in the field. It compiles symptoms, conditions, and demographic details to empower surgeons to find cases similar to theirs and to mine the database to reveal emerging trends and identify patterns, distinguishing between truly rare cases and repeated, related single instances of a larger problem.

Continuous Publication

Articles in the online journal, JBJS Case Connector, are not tied to a print publication and therefore are posted online in a continuous publication stream. Manuscripts are subjected to the same rigorous peer-review process as The Journal and only appear online after acceptance.

Contributions to JBJS Case Connector are welcomed from anywhere in the world and are considered on their merits. Articles must be written in English and should be submitted as outlined in the Instructions to Authors. The peer review process is blinded; manuscripts are judged by the quality and relevance of the work and not by the country of origin, the reputation of the author, or the fame of the department. Our aim is to publish the best material available from anywhere in the world.
