Global Surgery (GOS) is a bimonthly open access journal with a comprehensive peer review policy, and a rapid publication process. GOS features the very best in clinical and laboratory-based research on all aspects of surgical procedures and interventions. Patient care around the peri-operative period and patient outcomes post surgery are key topics for the journal.

We welcome contributions that can demonstrate near-term practical usefulness, particularly contributions that take a multidisciplinary / convergent approach because many real world problems are complex in nature. Contributions regarding patient satisfaction, preference, quality of life, and their role in optimizing new surgical procedures will be welcomed. The journal is characterized by the rapid reporting of case reports, clinical studies, reviews and original research, and more - all offering significant contributions to knowledge in clinical surgery, experimental surgery, surgical education and history.

The journal aims to promote publications from surgery faculty members who are otherwise unable to access other journals. Most importantly, those from countries or regions that have few resources to provide surgical care now have a forum to publish their approaches, research, and dilemmas in patient management -- specifically within surgical fields -- through clinical care, research, and education.

Global Surgery is composed of the following Specialty Sections:

Abdominal Transplant Surgery

Neurosurgery

Acute Care and Trauma Surgery

Orthopaedic Surgery

Bariatric and GI Surgery

Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery

Cardiac Surgery

Pancreatic Surgery

Colorectal Surgery

Pediatric Surgery

Dentistry

Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery

Emergency Medicine

Surgical Oncology

Endocrine, Parathyroid, and Thyroid Surgery

Thoracic and Foregut Surgery

General Surgery

Transplantation Surgery

Gynecologic Surgery

Vascular Surgery and Endovascular Therapy

Metabolic and Weight Loss Surgery

Urology

GOS provides an ideal forum for exchange of information on all of the above topics and more, in various formats: full length and letter length research papers, survey papers, work-in-progress reports on promising developments, case studies / best practice articles written by industry experts, and tutorials on up-and-coming technological breakthroughs that will be of general interest to a broad range of surgeons and surgical researchers. Submissions do not have to be novel or unusual, but need to reflect best practice.
