Due to the continued  high volume of submissions and the resulting backlog of accepted papers, Annals of Surgery will need to initiate steps to address the problem. We encourage all potential authors to consider the companion journal Annals of Surgery Open: Perspectives on Surgical History, Education, and Clinical Approaches for their research as Annals of Surgery works to get through the journal backlog.
 
Brief Clinical Reports - As of November 2021 Annals of Surgery will no longer be accepting Brief Clinical Reports for publication. We encourage potential authors to consider submitting to our companion journal Annals of Surgery Open: Perspectives on Surgical History, Education, and Clinical Approaches, which will consider Brief Clinical Reports for publication. Interested authors can submit a Brief Clinical Report on the Annals of Surgery Open Editorial Manager site.

Letters to the Editor – As of November 2021 Annals of Surgery will no longer consider Letters to the Editor for publication in the journal. Annals of Surgery Open: Perspectives on Surgical History, Education, and Clinical Approaches will consider Letters to the Editor for both Annals of Surgery and Annals of Surgery Open. Interested authors can submit a Letter to the Editor on the Annals of Surgery Open Editorial Manager site.​
