The fascinating field of osteology is rapidly developing. Several discoveries in recent years have completely revolutionized the way we understand bone metabolism, the healing processes and the treatment of bone diseases [1
]. In-depth knowledge of the mechanisms underlying healing and innovation carry the promise of improving patient care [3
]. With this spirit and under these auspices, a new journal has been created.
Osteology is a peer-reviewed international open access journal dedicated to basic and clinical research of bone science. In particular, the journal is interested in original research on bone-related diseases and their molecular mechanisms, biological and physiological research on bone, bone interactions with other organ systems, bone biomaterials, as well as methodological progress in osteology.
The main topics covered by the journal are degenerative, traumatic, inflammatory and tumor diseases. Different aspects of research on the molecular mechanisms of bone and bone-related diseases will be covered, as well as bone interactions with other organ systems, including cartilage, muscles, tendons and neurons. Other topics covered include biological and physiological research on bones, cartilage, joints and spine, methodological progress in osteology and bone biomaterials.
It is a total, exciting commitment. We are supported by the strong and passionate scientific community gathered around our journal.
The new Journal is ready! Now the challenge is that of content and the commitment is only one: choose the best through a strict strategy of peer review!
With this spirit, we are proud to announce the birth of osteology and encourage all researchers to submit their clinical and basic research with the aim to foster the improvement of science in the field of osteology!
