It is with great honor that I hereby announce the birth of ARTHROPLASTY, a novel open-access, peer-reviewed journal sponsored by the Arthroplasty Society in Asia (ASIA).
ARTHROPLASTY is designed to publish robust, updated and high-quality results that provide insights into all aspects of joint surgery, ranging from clinical and basic research to translational medicine of joint diseases and arthroplasty. Especially welcome are high-quality research papers on biomaterials, biomechanics, prosthetic design, application of new equipment and tools, clinical skills and experience, complication management and post-operative rehabilitation, among others. ARTHROPLASTY also publishes arthroplasty-related communications and guidelines. This new journal is aimed to serve as a unique forum committed to facilitating the exchange in basic and clinical research by our trustworthy and speedy publishing service.
We hope that ARTHROPLASTY will contribute to the academic exchange among the communities of joint surgery worldwide in general and in Asia-Pacific region in particular, with an attempt to enhance the global impact and elevate the academic status of Asian Arthroplasty. We have formed a strong editorial team consisting of worthy arthroplasty specialist worldwide, and we are endeavoring to make the team even stronger by constantly diversifying and growing its membership.
