JBJS Inc. Acquires Journal of Orthopedics for Physician Assistants (JOPA)
The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery (JBJS) Inc. announced that, effective today, the Journal of Orthopedics for Physician Assistants (JOPA) will be added to the JBJS family of publications and products focused on meeting the information needs of musculoskeletal health professionals.
“We at JBJS have long recognized the expertise and support PAs provide to today’s multi-professional medical team,” said JBJS Inc. CEO Paul Sandford. “This acquisition will enable us to build the largest community of PAs in the orthopaedic domain, specifically targeting the needs of PA readers, researchers, and authors.”
Dagan Cloutier, PA-C, Founder and Editor of JOPA, will remain in JOPA’s editorial leadership role. “As the publisher of The Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery—the gold-standard source of information in orthopaedics—JBJS, Inc. is well-positioned to maximize the quality and dissemination of JOPA content,” said Cloutier.
To introduce the entire orthopaedic community to the publishing of JOPA under the aegis of JBJS, Inc., JBJS will offer access to JOPA at no cost to all PAs, nurse practitioners, and other orthopaedic providers who register at the JBJS booth (#1831) during the upcoming AAOS Annual Meeting, March 1 – 5 in Orlando.
