ASES News - May 2017
 JSES Open Access
First Issue Now Available
JSES Open Access (JSES OA) is the official open access and online-only publication for eleven leading specialty organizations. This companion to Journal of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery focuses on medical, surgical, and physical techniques for treating injury/disease of the upper extremity, including the shoulder girdle, arm, and elbow.

The first issue of JSES OA came out in May of 2017 and can now be accessed at http://www.jsesopenaccess.org/. The issue consists of 10 articles.

JSES OA will be produced quarterly and will be edited by Pierre Mansat, the deputy international editor of JSES, with my assistance. We expect eventually to publish about 20-25 articles per issue. 

JSES OA will be available to anyone to read online without a subscription to JSES. The journal will be a pay to publish journal, although there will be no charge to submit articles – only if they are accepted for publication. 

Various types of articles that were beginning to overrun the print journal will be highly considered for the new journal, including narrative review articles, database mining articles, outcome instrument validation articles, and case reports. Any article may be submitted to JSES OA, but the above types of articles should preferentially be submitted there instead of to JSES, as they will have a better chance of publication. 

When articles are submitted to JSES, they will now be considered for 4 types of decisions – Accept (rarely), Revise, Reject, or the new decision, Reject but Consider Transfer to JSES OA. It will remain be the authors’ decision to do this, but that decision will indicate that the article submitted will likely have a good chance for acceptance at JSES OA. 

We look forward to our new journal affiliated with ASES.

Young Investigators Seeking Research Funding Urged to Apply for USBJI Career Development and Grant Mentoring Program
DEADLINE FOR APPLICATION SUBMISSIONS:  JULY 15, 2017

The United States Bone and Joint Initiative (USBJI) and Bone and Joint Canada are dedicated to increasing research of musculoskeletal diseases. To keep pace with the high and increasing burden of these diseases, a higher level of research performed by young investigators in the musculoskeletal diseases is required, and future levels of research assured. This is particularly important given the current environment for research funding, and academic careers. In response, the Young Investigator Initiative is a career development and grant mentoring program providing early-career investigators an opportunity to work with experienced researchers in our field to assist them in securing funding and other survival skills required for pursuing an academic career. To date 202 participants (55%) have successfully obtained $270 million in grants for 1,066 new musculoskeletal research studies. Participants consider this program instrumental to their success. They rate highly the one-on-one mentoring with experienced researchers, the opportunity for inter-disciplinary and peer-to-peer exchange, and collaborations established during workshops.

This career development and grant mentoring program is open to promising junior faculty, senior fellows or post-doctoral researchers nominated by their department or division chairs seeking to pursue a career in clinical or basic research.  It is also open to senior fellows or residents that are doing research and have a faculty appointment in place or confirmed. Basic and clinical investigators, without or with training awards, are invited to apply. Investigators selected to take part in the program attend two workshops, 12-18 months apart, and work with faculty between workshops to develop their grant applications. The next workshop is scheduled to take place November 10-12, 2017, in Toronto, Ontario. The unique aspect of this program is the opportunity for attendees to maintain a relationship with a mentor until their application is funded.  For more about the program and detailed application instructions, please refer to www.usbji.org/programs/yii/call-for-applications Deadline to apply is July 15, 2017.
