A message from Editor in Chief, Linda J. Sandell:
Welcome to the first issue of the Journal of Orthopaedic Research (JOR) for 2016. Our goal is to celebrate orthopaedic research and develop a community of orthopaedic scientists.
The January issue is special in that it will be open access all year! So, please take your time to “page through” the entire issue. In particular, I direct your attention to a new addition: Commentaries on JOR Articles. In the January issue, Clark Hung and Gerard Arteshian have commented on OARSI Osteoarthritis Cartilage Histopathology Assessment System: A Biomechanical Evaluation in the Human Knee by Waldstein et al. and Ivan Martin and Ralph Duhr have commented on the article Improving Translation Success of Cell-Based Therapies in Orthopaedics by Bara et al. We also have a review of the Kappa Delta Award winning work of William Bugbee. Lastly, please take a quick look at my Editorial where we highlight recent changes in the JOR to increase our service to members and readers.
As one of the core values of the ORS, Advocacy has always been extremely important to the society.
Strategic partnerships are key to increasing the society’s effectiveness.
