The ACOS is pleased to announce that we have partnered with Cureus to create an open access online peer-reviewed journal which includes separate journal channels for each of our discipline specialties. By partnering with Cureus, the ACOS is able to offer our members a robust peer-reviewed process, fully supported by experienced staff to ensure quick turnaround time for publishing, as well as worldwide article access via a PubMed number.

In September of 2019, we launched our online journal channels for Cardiothoracic/Vascular Surgery, General Surgery, Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, as well as Urological Surgery. We invite you to submit original, previously unpublished work/research for review and publication.  The editorial staffs in each division are positioned to receive, review and publish your research in the Journal of the American College of Osteopathic Surgeons (JACOS).

Please submit your previously unpublished submissions (articles, case studies, and/or poster presentations) directly to your discipline's channel as noted above. Submissions will be reviewed by the chief editor as well as editors from each discipline prior to being forwarded for a robust peer-review process utilizing the Cureus platform. Final edits, questions, and/or comments will be addressed with the senior authors prior to publication.  There is no cost to ACOS members to have their research reviewed and/or published through this open access journal.

We are excited to be able to offer this opportunity to our members and look forward to receiving your submissions!
