About the Journal

The International Journal of Paediatric Orthopaedics is a Open Access, Double- Blind, peer-reviewed journal being published under the aegis of the Indian Orthopaedic Research Group (IORG), an organisation dedicated to promoting Academic orthopaedic research in India. IJPO is started with an idea of a journal that will be international, intelligent, interactive and at the same time clinically relevant. Although the editors welcome submissions from all over the world, the journal primarily aims to publish research from Asian countries. The stress is on latest research in the field of Paediatric Orthopaedics including aetiopathology, clinical and radiographic outcomes, surgical technique and implant design, biomechanics, and biomaterials.

Why the new Journal?

There are two main reasons; [1] to produce a body of literature that is clinically relevant and to make this knowledge freely accessible to all. Journals have shown trend to move towards a more rigid framework of scientific publications, meanwhile losing the focus that Journals are meant to directly influence and improve patient care.
[2] Charging for downloading articles imposes another limitation on dispersion and use of knowledge. IJPO intends to counter these two issues by creating a journal that is intelligent, interactive, and clinically relevant and at the same time completely Open Access.

The International Journal of Paediatric Orthopaedics will be a quarterly (4 issues per year) print and online journal. The online version will be an open access source and the print version will be made available on subscription. The journal publishes original articles, systematic reviews and meta-analyses, instructional lectures, case reports, technical notes and letters to the editor.
