The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery had its origin as the Transactions of the American Orthopedic Association. The first volume of that journal contained the proceedings of the meetings of 1887 and 1888. Volume XVI of the Transactions of the American Orthopedic Association is also Volume I of the American Journal of Orthopedic Surgery. In 1919, when The Journal became the official publication of the British Orthopaedic Association, the word American was dropped from the title and Orthopedic was changed to Orthopaedic. That year's volume, the Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery, became Volume I (new series). The present title, The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, was adopted in 1922. In 1948, A (American) and B (British) volumes were established. The American Volume, which is the senior, allows the British Volume to use the title that we share. The American Orthopaedic Association remained the owner of The Journal until 1954, when an independent non-profit corporation, The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, Inc., was established.

Contributions from anywhere in the world are welcome and are considered on their merits. The manuscript must be written in English and should be submitted in the form outlined in Instructions to Authors. Manuscripts are subjected to blinded peer review by experts and a final decision by the editor. Papers are judged by the quality and relevance of the work, not by the country of origin, the reputation of the author, or the fame of the department. Our aim is to publish the best material available from anywhere in the world.

The American and British Volumes function independently. We cooperate in matters of general policy such as finance, advertising, printing, and distribution, but we do not discuss individual papers. Our methods of editing and our styles differ to some extent; our contents are totally different.
