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

One of the pleasures of being elected to the Presidential line is the task of editing the JTO. It is an additional pleasure to realise that I share this work with such a talented and enthusiastic Editorial Team. I look forward to providing you with interested and thought-provoking items for the next two years.

What could be in the festive gift box on the front cover? The benefits of BOA membership; access to the Annual Congress, training courses, podcasts and, of course, your JTO are just a few potential gifts.

Phil Turner, JTO Editor
