SAGE to begin publishing Foot & Ankle International

Los Angeles, CA (APRIL 26, 2012) – SAGE is excited to have been chosen by the American Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Society (AOFAS) to publish its journal, Foot & Ankle International, beginning in January 2013.

Foot & Ankle International© (FAI) began publication in 1980 and emphasizes surgical and medical management as well as basic clinical research related to foot and ankle problems. FAI offers peer-reviewed articles focusing on areas of interest such as surgical reconstruction, ankle replacement, lower limb trauma, sports injuries, ankle arthritis, wound-care, bone healing, pain management, orthotics, and diabetes.

"Our journal has experienced a tremendous increase in research paper submissions and SAGE, with its publishing expertise, commitment, and access to a worldwide readership, will take FAI to the next level," said Judith Baumhauer, MD, MPH, AOFAS President. "FAI currently provides the broadest spectrum and highest quality of foot and ankle research in the US and abroad. Our goal is to expand the access to this information and improve the foot and ankle care for patients around the world."

FAI will continue to support the AOFAS mission under the direction of the journal's Editor-in-Chief, David B. Thordarson, MD. Dr. Thordarson is Professor and Vice Chair, Residency Director, in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles.

FAI is just one outlet that helps the AOFAS create public awareness for the prevention and treatment of foot and ankle disorders, provide leadership, and serve as a resource for government, industry and the national and international health care community. Joining the SAGE journal family means that the journal will be available through the SAGE Journals platform and authors will be able to submit articles for review through SAGE Track.

"We look forward to helping the AOFAS journal grow with our partnership," said Bob Howard, Executive Director of Journals at SAGE. "Foot & Ankle International is a great addition to our strong orthopedic selection of journals."


The American Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Society (AOFAS), founded in 1969, is a Medical Specialty Society comprised of more than 1,800 American and International Orthopaedic Surgeons (MD/DO) specializing in the surgical and medical care of the foot and ankle. The organizational priorities are education and research.

SAGE is a leading international publisher of journals, books, and electronic media for academic, educational, and professional markets.
