Archives of Plastic Surgery (Arch Plast Surg, APS) is the official journal of the Korean Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons and is published six times per year on the 15th of January, March, May, July, September, and November. It is a peer reviewed, open access journal that publishes articles in all fields of plastic and reconstructive surgery including aesthetic surgery, microsurgery, craniofacial surgery, hand surgery, burns, wound healing, and basic research related to all areas of plastic surgery. Especially in aesthetic and some other subspecialties of plastic surgery, surgical concepts and technical approaches are different for those of different racial and ethnic backgrounds, and thus APS aims to be the leading forum for communications of techniques related to Asian patients' needs.
