Additionally, PRS GO provides rapid review and publication of accepted papers. PRS GO serves the international plastic surgery community, including surgeons, care providers, and patients alike. We encourage international researchers to submit to the journal in order to advance patient safety, improve surgical and procedural outcomes, and elevate the science of plastic surgery worldwide. PRS GO serves the overall mission of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons®, owner of the journal: it educates and supports plastic surgeons globally to provide the highest quality patient care and maintain professional and ethical standards through education, research, and advocacy."
