In June 2013, the BOA launched a new professional and instructional journal for all professionals involved in trauma and orthopaedics called the Journal of Trauma and Orthopaedics (JTO).

The journal is available to both members and non-members of the BOA free of charge, and replaces the BOA’s member-only publication ‘British Orthopaedic News’ (BON).

The JTO has a dedicated news section with the latest in the world of trauma and orthopaedics. The JTO also comprises of a Features section containing interesting articles on various themes, a Subspecialty section and a Medico-Legal section.

If you’re interested in submitting an article, please see the Instructions for Authors link below and follow the guidelines.

If you haven’t received your copy of the JTO in the post or if you would like to sign up for a free regular subscription, please email

The concentrated and rapid acquisition of skills and knowledge at the start of a career is not a new concept. Commencing higher surgical training remains a daunting prospect for most trainees. The article on “Boot Camps” [cover image] explores how they get new registrars up and running, able to cope with the sudden increase in responsibility and support their incorporation into the orthopaedic community within the training programme. The BOA and BOTA are supporting their rollout across the UK.
