Wolters Kluwer to publish Clinical Orthopaedics and Related Research
- 09 Feb 2017

Wolters Kluwer, a global provider of information and point of care solutions for the healthcare industry, has announced a new, long-term publishing partnership with The Association of Bone and Joint Surgeons® (ABJS). Beginning in 2018, the journal's 65th anniversary, Wolters Kluwer will publish Clinical Orthopaedics and Related Research® (CORR®), the specialty-leading journal of ABJS.

Wolters Kluwer and ABJS have a long history and this new partnership marks a homecoming of sorts. CORR was launched in 1953 in collaboration with the J.B. Lippincott Company (since acquired by Wolters Kluwer). During the first 55 years CORR was published by Wolters Kluwer, the journal's frequency increased from two to twelve times per year, it's impact factor increased steadily to the top tiers in surgery and orthopaedics, and an electronic version was launched. Archives dating back to 1953 will be available online upon the launch of CORR's journal website.

The return of CORR strengthens Wolters Kluwer's position as the pre-eminent publisher in the field of orthopaedics. It joins a portfolio of high-impact periodicals such as Journal of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, The Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery, Journal of Orthopaedic Trauma, and Spine, as well as the popular Master Techniques in Orthopaedic Surgery book series and other clinical resources.

Journal Spine releases special supplement on the Whiplash Injury
- 20 Dec 2011

Journal Spine, published by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, a part of Wolters Kluwer Health, has released a special supplement focusing on the Whiplash Injury.

The special ‘Roundtable’ article highlights the need for effective, research-proven approaches to early management of whiplash injuries. Whiplash is a very common type of neck injury, typically caused by rear-impact traffic crashes. Studies consistently show that neck pain and other symptoms of acute whiplash injury clear up within a few months in about half of patients. The other half have continued pain and disability one to two years later, with up to 20 percent having moderate to severe pain.

The special supplement also includes other articles and reviews of interest to physicians, surgeons, physical therapists, and other professionals involved in the evaluation and management of patients with whiplash. In addition to a new research study on the beneficial (or harmful) effects of early management, topics include the ways in which stress and financial compensation may influence the long-term outcomes of whiplash injury.

Spine is an international, peer-reviewed, bi-weekly periodical that considers for publication original articles in the field of spine. It claims to be the leading subspecialty journal for the treatment of spinal disorders. Only original papers are considered for publication with the understanding that they are contributed solely to Spine. According to the latest ISI Science Citation Impact Factor, the journal ranks highest among general orthopaedic journals and subspecialty titles.

The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery (British Volume) to undergo title change
- 02 Sep 2010

The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery (British Volume), published by The British Editorial Society of Bone and Joint Surgery, will be undergoing a title change within the next 5 years.

The title The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery (JBJS) is owned by The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, Inc, publishers of JBJS (American Volume), and has been licensed to the British Volume since its inception in 1948. For over 60 years, the two publications have marketed and distributed their journals together building a long-standing reputation of editorial excellence within the Orthopaedic community.

However, the publishing landscape is constantly changing and it is important that the two Volumes have clarity and autonomy to build and grow in their own direction. It has therefore been decided that this agreement will come to an end in 2015 and JBJS (British Volume) will seek a new title to advance the journal. The editorial quality, style and peer-reviewing process of JBJS (British Volume) will remain completely unchanged despite the change in title.

Peter Richardson, the recently appointed Managing Director of The British Editorial Society of Bone and Joint Surgery, will commence his position in October to lead the Society through this transition.

JBJS (Br) was first published in 1948 by The British Editorial Society of Bone and Joint Surgery with the aim to advance and improve education in orthopaedic surgery and allied branches of surgery. The journal publishes twelve issues a year of high-quality, peer-reviewed research, overseen by an international Editorial Board and a panel of 700 reviewers worldwide, led by Editor James Scott. The journal has a rejection rate of 85% and receives over 1650 submissions a year.
