Bibliographical noteFunding Information:
The idea behind the symposium was that a systematic evaluation of the state of large-database research in orthopaedic surgery could provide much valuable information to the many stakeholders who interact with these databases. These stakeholders include orthopaedic researchers, orthopaedic surgeons who read orthopaedic research, and journal reviewers and editors who evaluate research. The symposium concentrated on databases commonly used in joint arthroplasty, but much of the information presented in the JBJS Supplement has applicability across other orthopaedic disciplines. The symposium was sponsored by a National Institutes of Health/National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIH/NIAMS) P30 Center Grant (Principal Investigator, Daniel Berry, MD, and Co-Principal Investigator, David Lewallen, MD), The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, and the Orthopaedic Research and Education Foundation (OREF). Important input in the genesis of the symposium also came from the Editor of the Journal of Arthroplasty (John Callaghan, MD). Speakers, and authors of articles in the JBJS Supplement, were recruited for their expertise in each subject area. Many thanks to them and to the other workshop participants who gave of their time and expertise to participate in the presentations and discussions.
