The European Spine Journal, one of the leading spine journals internationally, has always been much more than just a European publication.

The journal has a strong presence all over the world, especially in Asia. Not only do we get many manuscript submissions originating from Asia, but we also are proud to have a large number of reviewers in that part of the

That is why the European Spine Journal is glad to see SpineWeek being held in Singapore. The European Spine Journal will be organising workshops on how to write a paper to maximise the chances of being accepted and also on how to do reviews for a scientific journal.

The Editors of the European Spine Journal look forward to meeting all their authors, reviewers and readers during the SpineWeek meeting in 2016.
