Archives of Surgical Research (ASR) ASR ISSN: 2709-684X (Print), 2709-6858 (Online) is a double-blind peer-reviewed quarterly ICMJE and COPE compliant journal dedicated to the local, national, and global advancement of surgical research, education, and clinical practice. It aims to promote continued development in surgery through the dissemination of knowledge, ideas, and good practice across surgical specialties. ASR provides readers with critically peer-reviewed, carefully selected and edited, and up-to-date publications about advancements in all surgical specialties.

The journal aims to uphold the highest standards at the cutting-edge of research, provide a focus for evidence-based medicine through the publication of review articles and special issues, and give the context of the findings through the publication of editorials, commentaries, and letters from the surgical community. We encourage the enforcement of reporting guidelines and encourage the registration of all research involving human participants in a publicly accessible research registry.

As a journal covering all surgical specialties, ASR aims to facilitate the transfer of important ideas and thought systems between and across specialties. Hence, ASR will help prevent the trend of increasing sub-specialization which leads to 'tunnel-vision' and the unfortunate concealment of important surgical advances within specific specialties.
