Aims and scope
Archives of Osteoporosis is an international multidisciplinary journal which is a joint initiative of the International Osteoporosis Foundation and the National Osteoporosis Foundation of the USA. The journal will highlight the specificities of different regions around the world concerning epidemiology, reference values for bone density and bone metabolism, as well as clinical aspects of osteoporosis and other bone diseases.
This journal is directed by the same Editors-in-Chief, Associate Editors and Editorial Board as Osteoporosis International. Authors interested in submitting their manuscripts to this journal should submit through the Manuscript Central Osteoporosis International website (http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/oi) and mention their interest in the cover letter. All policies and procedures for Osteoporosis International also apply to Archives of Osteoporosis. At times, an Editor-in-Chief may feel that a manuscript submitted to Osteoporosis International would be more appropriate to Archives of Osteoporosis and offer the authors the option to publish it in that journal instead. Archives of Osteoporosis should serve as a forum for the communication and exchange of localized regional observations related to osteoporosis and other metabolic bone diseases.
