All rights reserved.The aim of our study is to investigate change in the impact of Turkish Orthopedics and Traumatology on the international scientific literature by examining the success of the Acta Orthopa-edica et Traumatologica Turcica (AOTT) journal. All clinical research articles published in the AOTT between 2006 and 2015 were included in the study. The number of citations and the factors (number of centers participating in the study, the origin of study (domestic-foreign), design, level of evidence, type and subtype of studies) that may affect the number of citations were evaluated. A total of 517 clinical research articles were evaluated. There has been an increase in the citation rate over the last five years (p=0.046). The majority of the articles were multi-center (54.9%) and domestic-origin (85.1%). In the last five years, there has been an increase foreign-origin articles (p=0.01). The majority of the articles was level 4 (76.2%) and designed retrospectively (95.9%). In the last five years, there has been an increase in the evidence levels of the articles and prospectively design studies (p=0.07, p=0.157, respectively). The majority of the articles were related to treatment of the diseases (74%). In the last five years, there has been an increase in the studies related to economic and decision analysis (p=0.055). Articles were mostly related to trauma (26.5%). In the last five years, there has been an increase in the number of articles related to arthroplasty, and a decrease in those associated with foot-ankle and pediatric orthopedics (p=0.022, p=0.036, p=0.007, respectively). As a result; it was seen that Turkish Orthopedics and Traumatology increased its influence on the international scientific literature between the years 2011-2015.
