Published since 2005, HSS Journal: The Musculoskeletal Journal of Hospital for Special Surgery is a peer-reviewed journal published by SAGE beginning in 2021. Submissions are welcome from clinicians around the world. The journal features original research, review articles, and case reports on musculoskeletal conditions, their diagnosis, and their treatment. Articles from professionals in fields relevant to musculoskeletal health are encouraged: orthopedics, anesthesia, perioperative medicine, bone and mineral medicine, radiology and imaging, clinical pathology, rheumatology, telehealth, robotics, musculoskeletal nursing, neurology, physiatry, and rehabilitation.
In 2021, the journal was accepted into Science Citation Index Expanded and indexed in Web of Science. It has also received its first impact factor: 2.715. The journal is ranked 41/86 among orthopedics journals and 92/211 among surgery journals. This represents significant growth since its introduction in 2005.
Editor-in-chief Charles N. Cornell, MD, and the editorial board are dedicated to conducting anonymized peer review and minimizing potential conflicts of interest. Articles are published online on a rolling basis and then four times per year in print. We encourage prospective authors to refer to our submission guidelines and to submit manuscripts through our online submission portal at SAGE Track.
