Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery

The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery is a peer reviewed medical journal in the field of orthopaedic surgery. First published in 1887 (as Transactions of the American Orthopedic Association), it acquired its current title in 1922 and is published by The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, Inc. in Needham, Massachusetts, USA.

In 1948 The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, Inc. licensed the name of their journal to The British Editorial Society of Bone and Joint Surgery. The British Editorial Society of Bone and Joint Surgery has been publishing a British Volume of The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery (JBJS) ever since.

The American and British Volumes of JBJS are independent organizations. The two volumes do work together with regard to advertising and subscription sales as well as subscription processing, but the published contents of the two journals are completely different.

The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, American Volume: ISSN 0021-9355, 12 issues per year published by The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, Inc., a not-for-profit organization. Two free Surgical Techniques supplements are included each year plus occasional additional supplements.
