Journal of Orthopaedic Case Reports

Case reports are the stepping stones in building any body of literature. They are easy to write, have a mass appeal and have an important practical application to patient care.

In recent times this body of evidence has been neglected and the number of case reports accepted by mainstream orthopaedic journals has decreased considerably. Journals as policy are now not accepting case reports due to lack of space and the low priority attached to them. However, other branches like surgery and medicine have journals dedicated exclusively to case reports. The Journal of Orthopaedic Case Reports (JOCR) has been conceived on similar lines in order to cater to orthopaedic surgeons.

JOCR will be a quarterly online and print journal which will be published under the aegis of Indian Orthopaedic Research Group (IORG). It will be an open access and peer reviewed journal for wide circulation. The focus will be on case reports and small case series. These include rare cases, cases that have any significant message to deliver and challenging cases that have controversial management options in literature. It may also include any variation in techniques that the authors have innovated or a particular case that in authors’ opinion holds a special significance.

JOCR will have dedicated sections on Arthroplasty, Arthroscopy, Paediatric Orthopaedics, Trauma and Spine and an additional Miscellaneous section. All the section will have separate section editors. The journal will have a special “manuscript assist section” to support authors in writing manuscripts. This service will be provided by the Indian Orthopaedic Research Group which will help in making all manuscripts submitted to the JOCR of highest academic quality.

We invite you all to contribute to JOCR. A website for JOCR is launched  with an article submission software and detailed instructions to authors. Please visit http://jocr.co.in/index.php/jocr
