Collaborative Orthopaedic Research

Scientific research articles provide a method for scientists to communicate with other scientists about the results of their research. Scientific articles are typically co-written by labs or by a group of colleagues, because most experiments cannot be done by just one person; scientific discoveries are now typically made by several or many people cooperating. 
Unfortunately, the number of scientific orthopaedic publications originating from India in peer-reviewed international journals have been few and far between. This may be due to:

  • Poor clinical data collection, storage and retrival
  • Improper methodology in data collection
  • Improper study design
  • Lack of access to peer reviewed international journals
  • Lack of proper lab and research facilities
  • Lack of dedicated biostatistical staff to process the collected data

IORG aims to encourage changes that will foster the development of collaborative writing and research. We aim to collaborate with orthopaedic departments and individual orthopaedic surgeons to help them design, implement, and publish the results of scientific  studies which can be undertaken using their present patient population.
