Advanced Spine Journal (ASJ) is the official journal of the Egyptian Spine Association. The journal was founded in January 2012 as Egyptian Spine Journal (Egy Spine J). In January 2023, the journal expanded its vision towards the international scientific community and changed its title to be Advanced Spine Journal (ASJ). The ASJ is a national/international and multidisciplinary journal that publishes original, peer-reviewed articles on research and treatment related to the spine and high-quality, ethical, evidence-based spine care, including basic science and clinical investigations. The ASJ publishes full-length articles (in the form of Clinical Studies and Basic Science papers), Technical Reports, Review Articles, Case Reports, Letters to the Editor and several other special features. The publication language of the journal is English. The ASJ is published steadily and regularly on quarterly bases in January, April, July, and October yearly since 2012. From 2023 and on, the journal moved to continuous article publication (CAP) model, so our publication is one volume, one issue per year in a CAP model.
