Acta Orthopaedica 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 immediately free to the general reader but articles (including color print) are published with no costs to authors. The articles are presented in PubMed (abstract) with a link to PubMedCentral (full article). Furthermore, the entire Acta production, including the Supplements, since the very start in 1930 is free at Informa. App available for iPhone, iPad and Android
Acta Orthopaedica (previously Acta Orthopaedica Scandinavica) presents original articles 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 is distributed by Informa Healthcare.
Acta Orthopaedica publishes original papers from all parts of the world. 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. Articles requiring extensive space, such as monographs and doctoral theses, are published as supplements. Over the years, Acta Orthopaedica has issued more than 350 supplements.
