Revenue Sources and Advertising Policy

Advertising is the sole source of revenue for the South African Orthopaedic Journal.

All advertisements are subject to approval by the South African Orthopaedic Journal, which reserves the right to reject or cancel any ad at any time. Publication of advertisements in the South African Orthopaedic Journal does not imply endorsement but either the South African Orthopaedic Association or the South African Orthopaedic Journal. Advertisers and sponsors do not have advance knowledge of our specific editorial content. Content is not edited or modified in any way to accommodate advertisers. The journal does not knowingly permit advertising for a specific product in physical proximity to a specific article mentioning that product. Editorial decisions are made without influence by advertisers or sponsors.

On consideration of publication of an advertisement, the advertiser and the agency, jointly and severally, agree to indemnify and hold harmless the Publisher, the South African Orthopaedic Association and the South African Orthopaedic Journal, its officers, agents and employees against expenses (including legal fees) and losses resulting from the publication of the contents of the advertisement, including, without limitation, claims or suits for libel, violation of privacy, copyright infringement or plagiarism. All advertisements are accepted and published on the warranty of the agency and advertiser that both are authorised to publish the entire contents and subject matter of the advertisement.
