    Special Issue on Bones, Joints & Muscles


    Our bones provide support for our bodies and help form our shape. Joints are where two bones meet, which make the skeleton flexible. Muscles are the masses of tough, elastic tissue that pull our bones when we move. They together form our musculoskeletal system and enable us to do everyday physical activities.


    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles on exploring Bones, Joints & Muscles. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

    • Arthritis
    • Joint disorders
    • Osteonecrosis
    • Back pain
    • Fractures
    • Cartilage disorders
    • Knee injuries and disorders
    • Spine injuries and disorders
    • Shoulder injuries and disorders

    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.


    Please kindly specify the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title. The research field “Special Issue - Bones, Joints & Muscles” should be selected during your submission.
