Blue Ribbon Winners Free

Congratulations to the 2017 Blue Ribbon Article Award Winners

All Feature, Review, and Case Report articles submitted to ORTHOPEDICS are judged according to the following criteria: importance to clinical orthopedic care, quality of the written report, and broad interest to the orthopedic surgeon or a groundbreaking article with a narrower topic. During the peer review process, members of the Journal's Editorial Board and Review Panel rate articles according to these criteria, identifying those worthy of Blue Ribbon status. The Editors make the final decisions. Blue Ribbon Articles are published in the print edition of ORTHOPEDICS, as well as online. Articles not chosen for Blue Ribbon status are published online only. The articles listed below received Blue Ribbon designation in 2017. For more information on the Blue Ribbon selection process, see http://www.healio.com/orthopedics/journals/ortho/submit-an-article.
