Welcome to Annals of Joint (AOJ)
I personally have been long waiting for an orthopedic journal that integrates basic research with clinical practices, mixes medicine with engineering, and combines theory with practical application. Fortunately, under the help of the AME Publishing Company and with the kindest supports from Dr. Shiro Ikegawa and Dr. Freddie Fu, the dream has finally become a reality. The launching of this new journal, Annals of Joint (AOJ), represents our determination to make it a highly respected interdisciplinary journal in the field of bone and joint medicine. We would like to extend our appreciation to all who contributed to making this work a reality, in particular the members of the editorial board.
