Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Journal announces global expansion initiatives
Date:10/25/2012

New York, NY (October 25, 2012) Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (PRS), official journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), announced today two publishing initiatives that will expand the reach of PRS to the international plastic surgery community: A publishing partnership between PRS and Revista Brasileira de Cirurgia Plastica (RBCP), the official journal of the Brazilian Society of Plastic Surgery, to exchange content through a collaborative online presence for their members and journal readers; and the publication of a new peer-reviewed, international open access title, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery-Global Open, to be released in 2013 as a complementary title to PRS.

These publishing initiatives are an integral part of the ASPS mission to educate and support plastic surgeons globally with convenient, easy access to the highest quality research used to help inform their practice and improve patient care.

"The collaboration between PRS and RBCP is an important step in advancing plastic surgery research between our markets, and beyond," said Rod J. Rohrich, MD, Editor-in-Chief, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery journal. "Advancing PRS research into new markets is an important goal for the journal, and this partnership with Brazil, coupled with next year's launch of our open access title will deliver us an international scope and reach to advance research for the Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery specialty."

Now, the two leading plastic surgery markets (US and Brazil) will exchange research to support practitioners in their professional development. As part of the partnership, a new RBCP website will be launched to members attending the 2012 ASPS Annual Meeting Oct. 26-30, in New Orleans, LA. The RBCP portal site will be published 'alongside' PRSJournal.com, allowing members and readers easy access to the content. ASPS members and PRS subscribers will have full access to the RBCP content in English online, and content will be searchable for users on both sites. In addition, both journals will mutually exchange select articles and reprints in print, web and app formats. The RBCP site provides Brazilian practitioners with:

  • All RBCP journal content published December 2011 and afterwards will be available via the PRS website portal
  • Links to two selected PRS articles/month
  • Links to the Baker Gordon Symposium video collection on the PRS website
  • Links to the PRS Evidence-Based Medicine article collection on the PRS website
  • Full access to all RBCP website content

"The Brazilian plastic surgeons are among the most passionate and creative physicians within our specialty. This partnership initiative will provide US plastic surgeons with a valuable vehicle to tap into the research advances among the Brazilian society's leaders, while allowing for an exchange of academic information and technical innovation between our countries," added Dr. James Stuzin, MD, Co-Editor, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery journal.

Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery - Global Open will be released in 2013 and focus on all areas of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, including basic science/experimental studies pertinent to the field and also clinical articles on such topics as: breast reconstruction, head and neck surgery, pediatric and craniofacial surgery, hand and microsurgery, wound healing, and cosmetic and aesthetic surgery. Clinical studies, experimental articles, ideas and innovations, and techniques and case reports are all welcome article types.

As a complimentary journal to the ASPS official journal, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Global Open will provide an open-access venue for research studies sponsored by private and public funding agencies that require open access publication of study results. The journal's mission is to disseminate high quality, peer-reviewed research in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery to the widest possible global audience, through an online only, open access publishing platform. Learn more at this Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Global Open information page, where details on manuscript submissions will be available shortly.

The ASPS 2012 Annual Meeting will be held October 26-30 in New Orleans, LA, where Brazil is the guest nation. Attendees will have an opportunity learn more about the PRS RBCP partnership and view the new portal. Media and visitors are encouraged to visit Booth# 1415 for more information. Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery is published by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, part of Wolters Kluwer Health.
