New York/Stuttgart – Thieme is proud to announce the publication of the first issue of the Journal of Wrist Surgery (JWS). This new journal comes to Thieme through the vision and drive of its Editor-in-Chief, Dr. David Slutsky. JWS brings together all aspects of wrist surgery and will serve as an important reference source for both the student of wrist surgery as well as the seasoned operator who treat disorders of the wrist including hand surgeons, orthopedic trauma surgeons, and plastic and reconstructive surgeons.

The JWS publishes a wide range of peer reviewed articles which are cited in the Index Medicus pertaining to the investigation and treatment of disorders and injuries of the wrist. The journal articles include a special focus section consisting of 4-5 papers which discuss a specific topic in detail as well as original scientific articles, emerging surgical techniques, a wrist and carpal anatomy section, and case reports. All these various elements reflect the cutting-edge nature of JWS, which distills the ever-increasing knowledge surrounding the pathologies of the wrist joint - ensuring readers are always at the forefront of any exciting new developments.

JWS is available in print and online. Articles published ahead of print are available via the eFirst service on the Thieme E-Journals platform. All members of the European Wrist Arthroscopy Society will receive the journal for free in 2012 thanks to the support of Small Bone Innovations, Inc. and NEWCLIP Technics. From 2013, the journal will increase in frequency to 4 issues per year.
