Acta Orthopaedicapresents original articles, from all parts of the world, of basic research interest, as well as clinical studies in the field of orthopedics and related subdisciplines. Ever since the journal was founded in 1930, by a group of Scandinavian orthopedic surgeons, the journal has been published for an international audience.

Manuscripts are assessed by members of the Editorial Office, then either rejected or sent for review by our group of international expert reviewers. We receive about 700 submissions each year and accept about 100 for publication after revisions recommended by reviewers (open), editors, and our biostatistician. A decision, unless the manuscript is immediately rejected, usually takes around 8 weeks.
