During 2014, we will be soliciting manuscripts on innovation in surgical safety and safety in surgical innovation. The editorial board has selected this topic as our year-long theme. We are interested in papers that focus on novel ways surgeons are making the whole process of operative intervention safer- perioperative assessment, intraoperative monitoring of procedures, postoperative care. Additionally, we are interested in how surgeons are developing new techniques and procedures assuring safe outcomes. Accepted manuscripts will be given priority publication. Please indicate in your cover letter that your manuscript is to be considered for this theme.
JAMA Surgery is the official publication for the Association of VA Surgeons and the Pacific Coast Surgical Association. Each year, the journal publishes issues dedicated to the annual meetings of these two societies.
Due to the overwhelmingly positive response to the JAMA Surgery Clinical Challenge, we have temporarily discontinued accepting new submissions for this feature. Requests for submissions will resume in late 2014.
