International Surgery had been a print journal for over seventy years until 2012, when it was transitioned to an online only format. A University of Queensland (UQ) Library consultant worked with key staff from the International College of Surgeons, publisher of the journal, to explore the opportunities available to transition the journal online. A range of platforms were reviewed and assessed. The transformation was a success, achieving expansion of the options available to researchers from the adoption of Open Access publishing and Creative Commons. The extreme makeover for International Surgery by the close of 2013 resulted in resuscitation of this important journal.
