Hair Transplant Forum International
The ISHRS’s Hair Transplant Forum International, aka, the Forum, is the society’s publication exclusive to members. The Forum serves the field of hair restoration surgery by providing a free exchange of ideas in a non-peer-reviewed setting with articles relating to hair loss and its surgical and medical treatments. It is a full-color, 8½”×11″, bimonthly journal (every other month) with 40–54 pages (self-cover). Circulation includes more than 1,200 members; distribution is via 1st class USPS for the United States, and Global Mail (Royal Mail) for international.
Members may also download issues and articles of the Forum via the Forum ePublication site. Select articles are open-access.
The first issue of the Forum from Sept. 1990 was a 4-page newsletter created by founder O’Tar T. Norwood.
Created in 2019, the aim of Forum ePub is to make access and article discovery easier. Forum ePub was partially funded by the generous donors of the ISHRS’s Annual Giving Fund.
