European Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery and Traumatology (EJOST) was founded in 1991. It was initially named as OrthopédieTraumatologie, and since then it is dedicated in sharing knowledge and new evidence in the field of orthopaedics. Within 28 volumes and 157 issues, it has published 3218 scientific articles. In the early years of its distribution, published articles were in French, while the last two decades EJOST only hosts English articles between its pages. By the very beginning of its launch, it has been publishing high-quality research articles in all orthopaedic subspecialties and has gradually become one of the leading journals in its specific subject area. The aim of this study was to identify, analyse and categorize the most frequently cited articles, published by EJOST since its launch.
