It is with much enthusiasm that we share the news that the Journal of Spine Surgery (JSS) is now officially accepted for inclusion in PubMed Central (PMC). Consequently, authors publishing in JSS will enjoy maximum exposure of their scientific research and contributions. There is no doubt that indexation on PMC will enhance the visibility of articles published in JSS, as abstracts and full articles will be more easily accessed by the wider research community, and available online at no cost to both authors and readers—a core principle underlying the establishment of JSS. We would like to express our sincere appreciation for the enthusiastic and energetic support from all the editorial board members, authors, reviewers and readers. Peer review forms the glue that keeps a journal together, and we are indebted to the many surgeons and clinicians who have added value to the quality of publication through thoughtful commentary and guidance on suitability for acceptance of the many submissions we receive.
