Letter from the Editor

2021 marks some notable milestones in the international orthopedic community. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Professor, Doctor of Medical Sciences G.A. Ilizarov. In 1995, our journal titled Genij Ortopedii (Orthopaedic Genius) was founded in memory of Ilizarov.

Academician Ilizarov is the outstanding Russian orthopaedic scientist, well-known and recognized all over the world, the author of the new methodology "Ilizarov Transosseous Osteosynthesis", implemented in clinical practice in Russia and abroad. G. A. Ilizarov is creditied for the idea discovered to imitate nature proposing a new insight into the processes developing in the tissues during the treatment of musculoskeletal diseases and injuries. The articles of Academician Ilizarov published during his lifetime are still widely read and have up to 200 citations annually.

2021 marks the 70th Anniversary of the Ilizarov Method. The Ilizarov method is not only a technology for the treatment of a spectrum of skeletal conditions, but also a philosophy that has become fundamental for the development of modern traumatology

and orthopedics and the related fields of medicine. The Ilizarov method carries many advantages being a very useful tool for orthopaedic surgery. A search of all articles affiliated with the keyword Ilizarov over the past 10 years identified 1079 Pubmed medical and biological publications and 1396 Scopus contributions. The journals that publish the research data and the authors of the papers have a global geographical representation. For many years, scientific research in the field of limb lengthening and reconstruction was a priority for the Genij Ortopedii Journal. The thematic scope of articles accepted for publication in the journal has been recently expanded to be intended for both researchers and practitioners to encourage cross-fertilization between trauma, orthopaedics and related specialties. The Editorial Board welcomes the integrated research approach with the

concrescence of research initiatives and collaboration of different scholarly traditions and schools.

The Editorial Board of the Journal faces the problem that sometimes it takes long time for accepted article to be published in a particular issue because of more number of accepted papers in queue. Being aware of our responsibility to the authors and readers, we have decided to change the journal publication frequency from four to six issues per year since 2021.

The Genij Ortopedii Journal is a media partner of the Annual International Ilizarov Readings Meeting that is scheduled to take place on June 16-18, 2021 being included in the Plan of scientific events of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation. In appreciation to the scientist and the founder of one of the world’s highest-ranked orthopaedic institutions, the meeting is organized to celebrate the 100th Birthday of Academician Ilizarov, the 70th Anniversary of the Ilizarov Method and the 50th Anniversary of the Kurgan Ilizarov Center and originator of the Genij Ortopedii Journal. The conference organizers do hope that the meeting can be conducted in a traditional face-to-face format and are pleased to invite readers participate in this important global orthopaedic event.

Looking back on 2020 as the year of challenges and evaluating the work we have done, we feel very optimistic about the future. Wishing you good health!
