Annals of Surgery is making every attempt to assist in the dissemination of knowledge as surgeons across the world face the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are gathering information from those who have had direct surgical experience with this crisis or who have studied the issues and are doing their best to provide guidelines and "best practices". We are encouraging all individuals to submit via our editorial manager system any such proposed manuscript, likely as a Brief Clinical Report or Surgical Perspectives for consideration to an expedited peer-review process and for "fast-tracked" electronic publication and sharing via social media.
We hope you find them of value. We look forward to sharing as much information as possible with the surgical community.
