The Journal of One-Day Surgery (JODS) is the flagship publication of the British Association of Day Surgery. JODS publishes original articles including research trials, case series, case reports and service improvement project reports. Unlike many national publications, JODS is still able to offer citable peer-reviewed publication with no author processing fees. It also commissions featured articles, for example the 'How I do it' series detailing how high-performing day surgery units achieve the highest day surgery rates for specific procedures. JODS also brings you news of relevant forthcoming national meetings and provides summary reports of recent day surgery meetings hosted by BADS.
