The Bone & Joint Journal

The Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery (British Volume), from The British Editorial Society of Bone & Joint Surgery, has changed its name to The Bone & Joint Journal.

The society says that the journal will 'continue to maintain and nurture the same educational values and editorial standards as before, while constantly developing to meet the changing needs of our readers and authors throughout the world'.

The society says that it has also recognised the expanding needs of its online users with a new website. 'With channels dedicated to each orthopaedic specialty, a multimedia library, a semantic search function and the Bone & Joint app, we have developed quicker ways of accessing essential information for the time-constrained, busy orthopaedic community,' says the society.
