…backed by the name and reputation of SICOT, as well as the quality it stands for, we have immediately set high standards for acceptance (the rejection rate is already above 60%), in order to establish this journal within the list of quality journals in the field of orthopaedics”, say Professors Hatem Said and Jacques Caton, Editors-in-Chief of SICOT-J.

"As a result, the first articles were published after systematic double blind peer reviewing, and are now available online.”

SICOT-J places a high priority on rapid publication and seeks to publish a broad range of research study types including original clinical, basic and translational research. In addition, the journal publishes editorials, review articles, surgical technique papers, and case reports as well as the latest congress proceedings and letters to the editors.

SICOT-J publishes articles under a CC-BY license, enabling authors to be fully compliant with open access requirements of funding organizations where they apply. Authors are invited to submit their manuscripts and during the first year of publication article processing charges are waived.
