Aims & Scope

Sports Traumatology and Arthroscopy is an international, peer-reviewed journal dedicated to the latest advances and research in sports traumatology, arthroscopy and related surgical techniques. Our aim is to serve as a premier platform for the dissemination of significant new findings and the exchange of evidence-based knowledge and experience that highlight progress in all areas of sports traumatology and arthroscopy.


The primary aim of Sports Traumatology and Arthroscopy is to improve the care of patients with sports injuries by promoting the understanding of the pathophysiology of sports injuries, improving diagnostic techniques, and advancing treatment and rehabilitation methods. The journal aims to bridge the gap between sports traumatology research and clinical practice by providing a forum for the exchange of information relevant to clinical orthopedics, sports medicine and the science of sports injury and repair.

Scope of the Journal

The scope of the journal includes, but is not limited to, the following areas

Arthroscopy: Innovative techniques, clinical outcomes, and advances in arthroscopic surgery for the treatment of sports injuries.

Sports Orthopedics: Articles on surgical and non-surgical treatment options for sports injuries, including the use of novel techniques, materials, and implants.

Injury Prevention and Management: Studies on the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of sports-related injuries.

Regenerative Medicine: Treatment methods that involve the process of replacing, engineering, or regenerating human cells, tissues, or organs to restore or establish normal function after sports injuries, including ligaments, cartilage, menisci, and bone.

Biomechanics and Kinesiology: The study of the biomechanics of exercise and its effects on the body, with the goal of improving injury prevention strategies and rehabilitation approaches.

Rehabilitation and Physical Therapy: Evidence-based practices for rehabilitating athletes after injury or surgery, including physical therapy techniques and recovery protocols.

Performance Enhancement: Studies on optimizing athletic performance through innovative training techniques, nutrition, and injury prevention strategies.

Musculoskeletal Anatomy: Studies that focus on the anatomical and biomechanical aspects of sports injuries in order to develop better prevention and treatment strategies, such as new surgical techniques and modifications.

Diagnostic Techniques and Imaging: Research on imaging and diagnostic techniques for sports injuries.

Systematic review and metanalysis: Comprehensive reviews of the current literature that use explicit, systematic methods to identify, select, and critically appraise relevant research on a specific topic or question.

Case Reports: Detailed reports of individual cases, clinical experiences, and studies that contribute to the understanding of sports injuries and their management.

Sports Traumatology and Arthroscopy invites submissions from researchers, clinicians, and allied health professionals in sports medicine, orthopedic surgery, physical therapy, and related fields. We are committed to providing our readers with high-quality, impactful articles that contribute to the advancement of sports traumatology, arthroscopy, and injury management. Through rigorous peer review and a commitment to excellence, we aim to assist orthopedic surgeons and all physicians who care for patients with sports injuries in improving patient outcomes and advancing the field of sports traumatology and arthroscopy.
