Aims and scope

The Journal of Robotic Surgery (JRS) is a peer-reviewed publication dedicated to advancing the field of robotic surgery through the dissemination of cutting-edge research, technological developments, and clinical innovations. Under leadership of David M. Albala, MD, the journal aims to serve as a prominent platform for the exchange of knowledge and ideas among researchers, surgeons, engineers, and healthcare professionals in the field of robotic surgery.

Since its establishment in connection with Vipul Patel, MD, the journal has reported on advances in a wide range of surgical specialties including:

  • Advances in robotic surgical techniques and procedures.
  • Clinical outcomes and safety evaluations of robotic-assisted surgeries.
  • Development and assessment of new robotic systems, instruments, and technologies.
  • Integration of artificial intelligence and machine learning in robotic surgery.
  • Simulation and training methods for robotic surgical procedures.
  • Applications of robotic surgery across various medical specialties such as urology, gynecology, cardiology, neurosurgery, and more.
  • Cost-effectiveness and healthcare economics of robotic surgical interventions.

The primary audience for the Journal of Robotic Surgery includes researchers, surgeons, medical professionals, engineers, and academics actively involved in the study, development, and practice of robotic surgery.

Types of Articles:
The Journal of Robotic Surgery welcomes diverse types of articles, including original research papers, clinical studies, systematic reviews, meta-analyses and technical notes. We encourage submissions that present novel insights, evidence-based findings, and advancements in the field.

Authors interested in submitting their work to Journal of Robotic Surgery are requested to adhere to the journal's submission guidelines, which can be found under the ‘Submission Guidelines’ link to the right.

The Journal of Robotic Surgery is committed to promoting excellence in research and fostering collaborations between different stakeholders in the field. By providing a forum for high-quality research, the journal aims to contribute to the ongoing progress of robotic surgery and its impact on patient outcomes and healthcare practices.
