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 Congress issue of the JTO contains a broad spread of articles to inform and stimulate our readership.  This is my final “From the Executive Editor” after two years in post and I find it no easier to select those articles that receive comment from me in this section.

We are very honoured to have received a letter of congratulations from our patron, HRH the Prince of Wales.  It is optimistic and farsighted and includes a challenge to use our influence to help those countries less fortunate than ourselves.

Phil Turner, JTO Executive Editor
