Launched in 1905 as Surgery, Gynecology & Obstetrics, and originally priced at $5/year, The Journal of the Âé¶¹´«Ã½ (JACS) actually predates the foundation of the Âé¶¹´«Ã½itself. Begun by Dr. Franklin Martin, a gynecologist from Wisconsin, the journal included articles, abstracts, book reviews, editorials, and, in the beginning, society news. In 1910, all subscribers to the publication were invited to gather in Chicago as a kind of travel club to observe and study surgery firsthand.
In 1911 a permanent organization was proposed, and by 1913 the Âé¶¹´«Ã½ began. In 1994, the journalâ€™s name changed to the one we recognize today. JACS is the official scientific publication of the Âé¶¹´«Ã½. Today, JACS focuses on original work of clinical relevance.
