January 24, 2017

SAGE Publishing is delighted to announce a new partnership with AOSpine to publish Global Spine Journal (GSJ). Founded in 2012, the journal promotes communication among spine surgeons, orthopedic surgeons, and neurosurgeons across the globe by providing an integrated and balanced view of clinical and basic science studies of spinal disorders.

“We are thrilled to be publishing with SAGE as they have a fantastic reputation and their philosophies are closely aligned with our publishing goals,” said Editor-in-Chief, Jeffrey C. Wang, MD. “We believe that this is an important step for GSJ and it is one that will further our reach and accessibility, will improve the journal’s overall quality, and will further push GSJ into the future. We believe that moving to SAGE will further benefit our authors, readers, reviewers as well as AOSpine and its members. We look forward to working with SAGE and seeing where the future takes GSJ.”

“SAGE is bringing enormous power and energy into publishing GSJ and their track record is absolutely stunning. We are very fortunate to have a joint path for the future of the journal and SAGE with all their experience and extremely professional staff will enable Global Spine Journal to reach our goal of becoming one of the pinnacle must-read journals for all spine care professionals. Across the globe, the impact of SAGE will be felt positively for all our stakeholders and the future for GSJ is brighter than it has ever been,” added Co-Editor-in-Chief Karsten Wiechert, MD.

Global Spine Journal, the official scientific publication of AOSpine, is devoted to the study and treatment of spinal disorders, including diagnosis, operative and non-operative treatment options, surgical techniques, and emerging research and clinical developments.

“We look forward to publishing Global Spine Journal and supporting AOSpine’s efforts to bring crucial research and education to medical professionals and those affected by spinal disorder,” commented Bob Howard, Vice President of Journals, SAGE Publishing.

An international peer-reviewed journal, GSJ includes scientific articles as well as original research, reviews, commentaries, editorials, and technical reports in the spinal field. GSJ now incorporates Evidence-Based Spine-Care Journal (EBSJ), (which was previously a separate AOSpine publication) as a special section in each issue.
