What's more?

All to improve your personal skills

 Dear SOSORT Members,

Our annual meeting in Katowice has just finished, and I want to congratulate  all of you for the huge success of this event. The scientific quality of the meeting was probably the highest we have ever had in our meeting, and this depends on you and your active participation. We are growing up, attracting more researchers and more clinicians, becoming stronger and spreading the knowledge about the orthoepedic and rehabilitative treatment of scoliosis around the world.

For the next year we have a main target, that is reaching the Impact Factor for "Scoliosis Journal", that, as you know, is our own journal, successfully lead so far by Dr Theo Grivas. It would be great to have the contribution of all of you with original papers so to increase the number of publications. This would really help a lot!

I would also like you to write to me for specific suggestions you have for the Society, some further goals that we can plan to achieve during the next 1-2 years. I mean something very practical and crucial for the SOSORT, but also something feasible. According to your suggestion it will be my work to realize it.

Thank you once again for your support and the for having given to me the chance to serve once again the Society as the President. That's a big honour for me.

Scoliosis Journal

Sample image

Scoliosis Journal and Spinal Disorders (http://www.scoliosisjournal.com/), the official journal of our society is now indexed in Pub Med. Therefore I would like to invite you to submit your next paper to our new journal in order to support our work. Well-documented studies on conservative and surgical management of scoliosis are still needed in order to balance the therapeutic approach to this disease. As an example, among 2000 articles published on 'scoliosis' in the last 10 years (Medline, 1996-2005), more than 800 (40%) have focused on 'surgery' but only 20 (1%) on 'prevention and control.' Scoliosis will provide a forum to fill this gap, to facilitate international communication of professionals and, finally, to improve the care of patients living with scoliosis.
