Archives of Craniofacial Surgery (Arch Craniofac Surg, ACFS; pISSN 2287-1152, eISSN 2287-5603) is the official journal of the Korean Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Association. ACFS is also the official journal of the Asian Pacific Craniofacial Association (APCA). ACFS is a peer-reviewed, open-access journal that publishes articles in all domains of craniofacial plastic and reconstructive surgery, operative procedures, clinical and laboratory research, case reports, and literature reviews. Special topics as well as ideas, innovations, correspondence are invited for publication. ACFS is published six times per year (February 20, April 20, June 20, August 20, October 20, and December 20). The editorial committee makes decisions concerning editing, revision, and acceptance or rejection of manuscripts. Editing may include shortening an article, reducing the number of illustrations or tables, or changing the paper’s format. Surgical concepts and technical approaches can vary according to racial and ethnic background in craniofacial surgery and some other subspecialties of plastic surgery. Thus, ACFS aims to be the leading forum for disseminating research on techniques related to the needs of Asian patients. ACFS also embraces its identity as the leading craniofacial plastic surgery journal in the Asia-Pacific region, aiming to be the main forum for communication among craniofacial plastic surgery scholars and clinicians in this region and beyond, and the main voice presenting this group’s technical innovations to an international audience.

ACFS offers online manuscript submission for rapid peer review and communication with authors.

From 2012, ACFS succeeds the Journal of Korean Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Association (ISSN 1229-9820), which was launched in 2000. ACFS is indexed/tracked/covered by PubMed, PubMed Central, Scopus, KoreaMed, KoMCI, KCI, and CrossRef. Its work is supported by a Korean Federation of Science and Technology Societies (KOFST) grant funded by the Korean government.
