Collaborative Orthopaedic Research
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
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.
