The Journal of Acute Care Surgery (J Acute Care Surg), is the official publication of the Korean Society of Acute Care Surgery and The Korea Association of Trauma Nurses, and is an international, peer-reviewed, open access journal, that is published three times a year. This journal aims to provide a platform for modern, cutting-edge research at the forefront of evolving developments in acute care surgery in the Asia-Pacific area, with three essential components; trauma, critical care, and emergency surgery.
