  About the Journal

Journal of Bone and Joint Diseases (JBJD) is official Journal of UP Orthopaedic Association. It is a peer-reviewed quarterly journal. The stress is on latest research in the field of Orthopaedics including aetiopathology, clinical and radiographic outcomes, surgical technique and implant design, biomechanics, and biomaterials. There are two main Aims of JBJD; to produce a body of literature that is clinically relevant and to make this knowledge freely accessible to all. Journals have shown a 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. JBJD 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. The Journal of Bone and Joint Diseases was first published in 1995 and will now continue as three issues per year, online and print journal. The online version will be an open access source. The journal publishes original articles, systematic reviews and meta-analyses, instructional lectures, case reports, technical notes and letters to the editor.
