The Journal of Hip Surgery
Issues per year4
The Journal of Hip Surgery (JHIP) publishes articles related to the field of surgery of the hip in all of its forms including, but not limited to, trauma, reconstruction, and sports-related topics. With an editorial board comprising master surgeons and researchers from across the globe, the journal publishes internationally focused articles on clinical and basic scientific research in all specialties of hip surgery. JHIP will report on outcomes, complications, tribology, biomaterials, biomechanics, metallurgy, as well as newer prosthetic designs, especially as they relate to unexpected consequences. Educational case reports as well as review articles and meta-analyses will be welcomed. Articles pertaining to arthroplasty, joint preservation, arthroscopic surgery and sports medicine, pediatrics, trauma, and associated disorders of the hip including tumors, osteonecrosis, and metabolic disorders will also be considered.
The goal of the Journal of Hip Surgery is to publish and disseminate peer-reviewed articles to all practitioners in the medical field including those who perform surgery, those who care for patients requiring surgery, and to the institutions in which surgeons can perform state-of-the-art procedures. We hope that in doing so, we can help achieve the highest level of patient care and to provide the highest quality outcomes. It is only through spreading and sharing the knowledge of researchers, innovators, and thought leaders that we can advance the art. Importantly, the timeline from submission to review and then to publication will be short.
