The field of craniofacial surgery has experienced tremendous growth in the past decade. The Journal of Craniofacial Surgery aims to keep pace with this rapid growth of information relative to the technology and evolved treatment in this field.
The editorial board is composed primarily of plastic surgeons with representation by specialists in dentistry and related fields. While there are other journals, such as Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the Cleft Palate—Craniofacial Journal, the editors feel there is a market for another journal to allow up-to-date input on this ever-growing, ever-expanding subject.
The format of the journal is laid out quite well, with each issue having a representation of original articles by acknowledged authors as well as articles related to basic science. There is a nice section on technical strategy with several articles on "How I Do It." The remainder of the journal contains book reviews, correspondence, and a good section
