Now an Open Access Journal

Submit Your Research

Journal of Investigative Surgery is converting to Open Access

The journal publishes peer-reviewed scientific articles for the advancement of surgery. It is the only journal that encompasses the individual and collaborative efforts of scientists in human and veterinary medicine, dentistry, basic and applied sciences, engineering, and law and ethics. The journal is dedicated to the publication of outstanding articles of interest to the surgical research community.

By making Journal of Investigative Surgery open access, research published in the journal will be available to the widest possible audience and therefore can make a greater contrition to the advancement of surgery, to the ultimate benefit of patient care and rehabilitation. As part of the journal’s conversion to open access, from 28th June all manuscripts submitted to the journal will, if accepted, be required to pay an article publishing charge (APC) which can be covered by an author’s funder or institution. We look forward to receiving your submissions and welcome your support in this exciting new open access chapter for the journal.

    Journal of Investigative Surgery is particularly interested in receiving manuscripts on:

    • Human and Veterinary Medicine

    • Dentistry

    • Basic and Applied Sciences

    • Engineering

    • Law and Ethics

              The journal will consider individual and collaborative research of interest to the surgical research community.
