IJSS - International Journal of Spine SurgeryWe are pleased to announce that ISASS’s official medical journal, the International Journal of Spine Surgery, is now included in PubMed results. The Journal’s inclusion in PubMed Central is the culmination of years of fine work on the part of our authors and reviewers. The full back catalog, including volumes published as the SAS Journal, will be visible in results in the upcoming weeks.

We’re far from resting after this accomplishment, however. Our Journal’s Section Editors have been chosen from the request for volunteers we sent after last year’s Annual Meeting. We’d like to introduce them:
