Journal of Orthopaedic Research

Call for Papers for a Special Theme Issue of the Journal of Orthopaedic Research:  New Frontiers in Tendon Research


The Journal of Orthopaedic Research (JOR) is the premier source for advanced orthopaedic research in the world today. Fully searchable, the JOR research articles on musculoskeletal subjects range from microbiology to engineering to clinical work, and the archive is searchable all the way back to 1983. Members may also submit research articles of interest to the JOR editors for consideration in future publications.
