The Australasian Journal of Plastic Surgery is a peer-reviewed online-only journal established by the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons, the Australasian Foundation for Plastic Surgery and the New Zealand Association of Plastic Surgeons. The journal is published twice a year, in March and September, with plans to increase publication in due course.

The aim of the Australasian Journal of Plastic Surgery is to provide a platform for research and review in the fields of plastic and reconstructive surgery in the form of original and review articles, case reports, perspectives, editorials, letters to the editor, media reviews and technical 'how to' video library procedures as well as practical, non-clinical skills for surgeons.
