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

Current Edition

Welcome to the first issue celebrating the Centenary of the British Orthopaedic Association.  Our feature article by Ian Stephen and David Adams traces not only the development of our Association but also provides a fascinating outline of how our specialty has developed over the last 100 years.  Starting from a meeting of 12 members on 2nd February 1918, we have grown to a membership of almost 5000 with just under 2000 attending our last Congress.

As you explore this edition, consider what our forebears from 1918 would think about the content and wonder what the 2118 volume will look like.
