Aims & Scope


Surgical Science is a peer reviewed international journal dedicated to the latest advancements in surgery. The goal of this journal is to keep a record of the state-of-the-art research and to promote study, research and improvement within its various specialties.

  • We are also interested in short papers, as in the form of a letter, that clearly address a specific narrow problem and in papers that survey problems and new results pertaining to a certain topic. Authors may be invited to write short papers on the same topic in more than one successive issue of SS.
