Scholarly publishing is in the throes of a paradigm shift. Thanks to the availability of online authoring tools, it is no longer necessary to align with a major publishing house or society to publish articles, a monograph, or an entire textbook. In addition, access to social media outlets allows authors to connect directly with their audience to promote their newly published content.

OrthopaedicsOne is at the forefront of this paradigm shift, offering orthopaedic surgeons and other health care professionals in musculoskeletal medicine the opportunity to easily and quickly self-publish using our authoring tools and powerful multimedia platform. We can help you bypass the lengthy processes in place at traditional publishing houses so that you can have your content online and discoverable by the major search engines and your peers within months, not years. Because your content will be a “living” document, it can be revised as needed to ensure that it remains current – no waiting for the next edition or printing.

Case Example: PORTNotes

The Miami Sarcoma Group, under the direction of J. David Pitcher, Jr., MD, and Cynthia Emory, MD, has taken advantage of the OrthopaedicsOne self-publishing platform to collaboratively create a 16-chapter textbook on musculoskeletal oncology, complete with color images and radiologic examples, called PORTNotes – The Pathology, Orthopaedics, and Radiology of musculoskeletal Tumors

PORTNotes is continually updated and refined by the Miami Sarcoma Group. The goal is to provide a current outline of topics to build on a basic knowledge orthopaedic pathology. The Miami group decided to arrange the tumors in a histologically based format to offer clinicians a systematic approach – often lacking – to developing a differential diagnosis. Bone and soft tissue lesions are included under one heading to solidify an understanding of orthopaedic oncologic surgery. The latest research findings on each condition are integrated into the existing content, and citations are added to the comprehensive references list.
