The Orthopaedic Journal at Harvard Medical School is a review and update of academic activities in the Harvard Combined Orthopaedic Residency Program. It is not a peer-reviewed publication. The opinions expressed and the accuracy of the data are the responsibility of the authors alone and do not necessarily reflect the opinion of the editorial staff and the Harvard Orthopaedic Residency Program.
Unpublished original investigations should be referred to in general terms (e.g. trends, fractions, or percentages) so that future publication of the study in a peer-reviewed review is not compromised. Mention of unpublished studies in The Orthopaedic Journal at Harvard Medical School is meant to inform the readership of current research activities and interests of Harvard faculty. Citation in this manner represents a type of press release and as such does not constitute dual publication according to the Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts Submitted to Biomedical Journals (NEJM 1997 336:309-315). Nonetheless, authors should be forewarned that the final judgement on such matters is made by the editor of the journal to which the final manuscript is submitted.
Submissions to The Orthopaedic Journal at Harvard Medical School should take the form of an organized review. The language can be relatively informal. Instead of simply reprinting abstracts of recent work, the review format will provide the opportunity to summarize background information and mention recent developments in the field (including presentations at national meetings, symposia, personal communications, and published literature) prior to summarizing the research performed by a Harvard group. The style of the manuscript should follow the Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts Submitted to Biomedical Journals (NEJM 336:209, 1997). One electronic copy of the manuscript is sufficient. One set of illustrations can be submitted in any form (e.g. slides and jpeg files welcome).
