Artificial Intelligence Surgery (AIS) is an international peer-reviewed, open access, online journal.

Aims and Scope

Artificial Intelligence Surgery is a surgical journal that focuses on the interface of computers and the art of surgery. The aim of this journal is to create a space for discourse in terms of topics related to artificial intelligence (AI) in surgery such as smart surgical technology/digital surgery, computer-assisted surgical systems and surgical data science. The intention research direction on robotics includes clinical and technological work on tele-manipulation, robotic-assisted technologies, robotic Natural Orifice Transluminal Endoscopic Surgery (NOTES) and fully autonomous robots. Priority will be given to research and clinical studies of augmented reality, image-guidance, radiomics and 3D printing. As opposed to many other journals on surgical technology, this journal will not be limited to laparoscopy or other forms of minimally invasive surgery alone, but accept submissions that possess significance and scientific excellence in AI, computer-enhanced imaging and any automation as it pertains to open surgery, endoscopy, NOTES and interventional radiology.

The intended research fields of the journal include general surgery, surgical oncology, urology, bariatric surgery, colorectal surgery, trauma surgery, breast surgery, transplant surgery, orthopedics, gynecology, vascular surgery, cardio-thoracic surgery, neurosurgery, plastic surgery and otolaryngology. The journal also welcomes papers on the ethical issues that will arise as AI becomes more diffuse.

This journal supports equality, inclusion & diversity, stands against racism, discrimination based on sex or sexual orientation, discrimination based on religion or lack their of, and fully advocates inclusion and diversity.

The journal publishes Original Articles, Review Articles, Meta-Analyses, Systematic Reviews, Technical Notes, Commentaries and Letters to the Editor, some of which may related to Artificial Intelligence Surgical Centers of the World (These articles are descriptions of Surgical, Endoscopic or Interventional Radiographic Departments that are actively doing or researching artificial intelligence as it pertains to surgery).
