Call for Papers: Surgical Delivery in Under-Resourced Settings

During 2015, we are soliciting manuscripts on surgical delivery in under-resourced settings. The editorial board has selected this topic as our year-long theme. We are interested in papers that focus on strategies for providing surgical care in resource-poor settings and on methods for expanding capacity, improving delivery, and reducing the global surgical burden of disease. Additionally, we are interested in papers that address the ethics of global surgical care. Accepted manuscripts will be given priority publication. Please indicate in your cover letter that your manuscript is to be considered for this theme.
