JAAOS receives ASHPE Gold Award

Each year the American Society of Healthcare Publication Editors (ASHPE) recognizes editorial excellence and achievement in the field of healthcare publishing. Its annual awards completion provides an opportunity for publishers to measure their efforts against the very best the healthcare sector has to offer.

Recently, the Journal of the AAOS (JAAOS) received the ASHPE Gold Award as the “Best Peer-Reviewed Journal of 2011.”

“The healthcare publishing field is vast and it means a great deal to the editorial board and staff of the JAAOS to be recognized for our editorial excellence,” explained Jeffrey Fischgrund, MD, editor in chief. “Our peer-reviewed journal maintains meticulous criteria for submission, so that qualifying manuscripts adhere to the highest standards of quality. This award is a recognition of and a testament to those high standards.”

JAAOS is pleased to accept the award as a positive confirmation of its position as the preeminent provider of musculoskeletal education and validation of its mission of championing the interests of all patients, serving AAOS members and the profession, and advancing the delivery of the highest quality musculoskeletal health care.
