Why the new Journal?

This is the first question that will come to your mind when there are already existing journals of Spine Surgery. Well we feel there are two main reasons; to produce a body of literature that is clinically relevant and to make this knowledge freely accessible to all. Journals have shown trend to move towards a more rigid framework of scientific publications, meanwhile losing the focus that Journals are meant to directly influence and improve patient care. Charging for downloading articles imposes another limitation on dispersion and use of knowledge. IJS intends to counter these two issues by creating a journal that is intelligent, interactive, and clinically relevant and at the same time completely Open Access.


We invite you to join us in this cause as the Editorial Board member of IJS. As an editorial board member you will be required to review maximum of 3 articles in a year. You can also contribute to help build the journal by giving us suggestions and promoting the journal in your circle, however this is purely voluntary.
