Assurance of quality: All papers will be subjected to a
rigorous, double-blinded peer review. At
JAAOS Global, this means reviews by:
- Two outside experts in the article's subspecialty area
- A Deputy Editor with expertise in the subspecialty
- William N. Levine, MD, Editor-in-Chief of
Journal of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons or Jeffrey S. Fischgrund, MD. Editor, Research
A proportion of
JAAOS Global Research & Reviews submissions are rejected by the Editor-in-Chief or the Editor, Research without being sent for additional external review, a policy that provides authors with a quick decision so they can submit the article to another publication.
