Acta Orthopaedica (previously Acta Orthopaedica Scandinavica) is owned by the Nordic Orthopaedic Federation and is thereby a non-profit journal. Since 2005 Acta is a so called platinum Open Access journal, which means that it is not only free to the general reader but articles (including color print) are published with no costs to authors. The articles are immediately, after authors have approved proofs, presented in PubMed (abstract) with a link to PubMedCentral (full article). Furthermore, the entire Acta production, since the very start in 1930 is free at Taylor & Francis, our publisher. App available for iPhone, iPad and Android
Acta Orthopaedicapresents original articles, from all parts of the world, of basic research interest, as well as clinical studies in the field of orthopedics and related subdisciplines. Ever since the journal was founded in 1930, by a group of Scandinavian orthopedic surgeons, the journal has been published for an international audience.
Acta Orthopaedica Manuscripts are assessed by members of the Editorial Office, then either rejected or sent for review by our group of international expert reviewers. We receive about 1.000 submissions each year and accept 150 for publication, most of them after revisions recommended by reviewers, editors, and our biostatistician. A decision, unless the manuscript is immediately rejected, usually takes around 8 weeks. Acta articles are printed under the terms of Creative Commons Attribution Noncommercial License which permits any noncommercial use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided the source is credited.
