The Malaysian Orthopaedic Journal (MOJ) was first published in 1997, and currently we are publishing three issues a year. The main objective of MOJ is to disseminate new knowledge and provide updates in Orthopaedics, trauma and musculoskeletal research. The journal also provides a platform for authors to share clinical experience and innovative ideas in the management of musculoskeletal conditions. MOJ publishes original papers, case reports, review papers, editorials, special papers and letters to the editor. All scientific papers are coded and archived with digital object identifier (DOI).
