In the latest Journal Citation Reports (Web of Science Group, 2019), CARTILAGE continues to experience consistent growth, achieving a 13% increase over last year’s impact factor. With its highest 2-year impact factor yet at 2.961, the Journal now ranks 18/76 in the Orthopedics category. This positive growth reflects the high quality of the research published in the Journal. We sincerely thank all our authors, editorial board members, reviewers, and readers for their continued support which has led to such a strong impact factor showing.
CARTILAGE is a peer-reviewed quarterly journal by the ICRS and SAGE Publishing. The Journal focuses on the musculoskeletal system with particular attention to cartilage repair, development, function, degeneration, transplantation, and rehabilitation. Aimed at researchers and clinicians involved in cartilage biology and repair, CARTILAGE publishes full length original manuscripts on all types of cartilage including articular, nasal, auricular, tracheal/bronchial, and intervertebral disc fibrocartilage. The journal is indexed in all major medical databases, including MEDLINE.

The ICRS is the main forum for international collaboration in cartilaginous tissue research and joint preservation. Recognizing that there is a continuum from cartilage injury to degenerative joint disease we bring together basic scientists, clinical researchers, physicians, other healthcare providers and members of industry, engaged or interested in the field of articular biology, its genetic basis and regenerative medicine. We seek to improve our patients´ quality of life, decrease their disability and reduce the impact of degenerative joint disease on healthcare systems worldwide by preserving joints and maintaining function.” The Society has currently 1,300 active members from 65 countries. The purpose of ICRS is charitable: The society envisages the scientific research and the exchange of knowledge among physicians, scientists, patients and researchers of the industry in the field of Cartilage Regeneration & Joint Preservation. To serve its purpose, the society organizes international educational meetings, publishes a scientific journal and provides a universal internet platform.
