eCM, published by AO Research Institute Davos

eCM publishes preclinical research in the musculoskeletal field (Trauma, Maxillofacial (including dental), Spine and Orthopaedics) and the cells & materials used in the replacement, repair or regeneration of these tissues.
eCM Impact Factor 2013 4.887. Five year Impact Factor 5.991

News

On behalf of the eCM council we are very pleased to announce that we have broadened our scope on December 8th 2014. Please check out our exciting new scope. We are also very proud to announce a great addition to our Scientific Editorial board, Prof Stephen Ferguson of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) Zürich, CH. His expertise lies within the areas of mechanical and biological mechanisms within the musculoskeletal area. We welcome Stephen and thank him in advance for his commitment.

Due to misunderstandings, the eCM International Editorial Review Board has been renamed the eCM International Review Panel.
