Acta Orthopaedica (previously Acta Orthopaedica Scandinavica 1930-2004), owned by the Nordic Orthopaedic Federation, is a non-profit electronic, immediate Open Access journal, meaning your work is free for every-one to access online as soon as it’s published (Gold OA).
Abstracts are presented in PubMed with full text available through PubMed Central. Furthermore, all Acta Orthopaedica content dating back to 1930 is freely available.
Perspectives (up to 1,000 words plus 1 Figure/Table and up to 10 references) highlight recent exciting research, whether published in Acta or another journal. Perspectives should add a dimension to the research and not merely be a summary of the findings in a paper. They may explain the orthopedic importance of new findings within a field or comment on the potential interdisciplinary significance. Perspectives may also call attention to matters of orthopedic interest not necessarily related to recent publications. A Perspective may also propose a new hypothesis or discuss the implications of innovations. Suggestions for Perspectives are peer reviewed and may be subject to editorial revision.
