The International Journal of Spine Surgery is a publication aimed at disseminating high-quality spine surgery research to an audience of physicians, policy-makers, and patients. To achieve this goal of maximizing the impact of the research we publish, the Journal provides access to its articles without any paywall or subscription.
In order to provide free, instant public access to articles, the Journal has opted not to charge author fees; submitting an article and publishing with the Journal remains just as free as reading articles. The Journal is funded by reprints, permissions, advertisements, partnerships, grants & donations, and so on.
As in traditional scholarly publishing models, the Journal holds copyright on its published material rather than using any alternative licensing scheme.
