The Journal's mission is the dissemination of knowledge to improve the care of patients with musculoskeletal disorders.

The Journal of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons was established in the fall of 1993 by the Academy in response to its membership’s demand for a clinical review journal. The AAOS is the global leader in orthopaedic surgical education.

Each issue includes richly illustrated peer-reviewed articles focused on clinical diagnosis and management, and research articles chosen for quality and timeliness. Special features in select issues provide commentary on developments in pharmacotherapeutics, materials and techniques, and the cutting edge of basic research.

The editorial board selects review articles that critically evaluate and synthesize current information on the diagnosis and management of musculoskeletal conditions and document the current state of orthopaedic practice. Original research is published in the Green Research section of JAAOS.
