We are delighted to bring you the good news that the Journal of Spine Surgery (JSS) is now officially accepted for inclusion in PubMed Central (PMC), which is a free full-text archive of biomedical and life sciences journal literature at the US. National Institutes of Health’s National Library of Medicine (NIH/NLM). All content that has been, and will be, published in the journal will be processed for indexing in PubMed Central as soon as the indexation process is finished. Consequently, authors publishing in JSS will enjoy maximum exposure of their research.
This is a proud moment for Editor-in-Chief Ralph J. Mobbs, BSc, MB, BS, MS, FRACS, Co-Editor-in-Chief Kevin Phan, BSc (adv), Associate Editors, the entire Editorial Board members, authors, reviewers, and everyone who has played a part in making the JSS successful.
Launched in December 2015, The Journal of Spine Surgery (JSS, J Spine Surg, jss.osspress.com) is a quarterly peer-reviewed and open access publication, dedicated to the field of spine surgery, science and clinical outcomes. JSS aims to provide a forum for the dissemination of progresses in all areas related to spinal disorders and surgical techniques worldwide. Up to Aug 2016, it has published three issues, readers will find Editor-in-Chief’s introductions for each of these issues (1-3).
Less than a year after its first issue, being indexed will greatly expand the reach of JSS and its content, this will definitely encourage JSS to publish more novel and high quality research papers in future, and we highly encourage your submission to JSS. We are confident that indexing in PMC will be the first of many accomplishments for JSS.
