Scoliosis and Spinal Disorders (ISSN 2397-1789) is an international, multidisciplinary open-access, peer-reviewed, online-only medical journal addressing all spine conditions. The journal encompasses all aspects of research on prevention, diagnosis, treatment, outcomes and cost-analyses of conservative and surgical management of all spinal deformities, disorders and conditions (e.g. low back pain, degenerative disc disease, trauma, etc). Both clinical and basic science reports form the cornerstone of the journal in its endeavor to provide original, primary studies as well as narrative/systematic reviews and meta-analyses to the academic community and beyond. The journal aims to provide an integrated and balanced view of cutting-edge spine research to further enhance effective collaboration among clinical spine specialists and scientists, and to ultimately improve patient outcomes based on an evidence-based spine care approach. The journal has had a remarkable history in providing thought-provoking and cutting-edge research and perspectives.[1]
