Announcing the Official Journal of CSRS

Clinical Spine Surgery, is now the official journal of the Cervical Spine Research Society. CSRS recently signed an agreement with Wolters Kluwer publishers, to transition Clinical Spine Surgery into a journal that will focus on cervical spine surgery over the next few years. Dr. James Harrop, MD, President of CSRS, is excited to share the news and states, “Our society is the best kept secret in medicine, until now. The ability to broadcast and disseminate our research and education to a global audience is paramount to continuing improvements in patient care. We are all excited about this opportunity and ask that all members help use utilize this tool.”

Clinical Spine Surgery, the official journal of the Cervical Spine Research Society, provides readers with primary research studies, specifically level 1, 2 and 3 studies, ensuring that articles that may actually change a surgeon’s practice will be read and published. Each issue includes a brief article that will help a surgeon better understand the business of healthcare, as well as an article that will help a surgeon understand how to interpret increasingly complex research methodology. Clinical Spine Surgery is your single source for up-to-date, evidence-based recommendations for spine care and is published ten times per year.

Information for authors interested in submitting a manuscript can be found here.
