OKOJ Welcomes New Topic Ideas

Located on the OrthoPortal, Orthopaedic Knowledge Online Journal (OKOJ) is the Academy’s online-only, peer-reviewed journal for authoritative orthopaedic knowledge and practice. OKOJ is currently accepting proposals for articles dealing with the etiology, diagnosis, and management of orthopaedic injuries and conditions, as well as articles on orthopaedic basic science and pain management. Articles may address a wide range of issues, but contributions on emerging and state-of-the-art orthopaedic surgical techniques, accompanied by surgical videos, are especially welcome.

OKOJ’s mission is to disseminate comprehensive, authoritative orthopaedic knowledge to improve the care of patients with musculoskeletal disorders. It provides orthopaedic surgeons and other healthcare professionals with high-quality educational resources that they can trust.

Recent OKOJ articles have focused on topics such as the following:

  • Neuromas of the Foot and Ankle
  • Pathologic Fractures of the Femur and Humerus
  • Angular Deformities of the Lower Extremity in Children
  • Common Acute Hand Infections
  • Distal Tibia Allograft for the Management of Anterior Glenoid Bone Loss.

If you have a topic of special interest, I strongly encourage you to consider publishing in OKOJ. Your orthopaedic colleagues will certainly benefit from your knowledge and experience.

For instructions on submitting your article proposal, visit www.okoj.org/contribute or the OKOJ home page (www.okoj.org). Your proposal will be reviewed by the appropriate journal editors and, if it is accepted, you will be invited to develop a full article for possible consideration for publication in OKOJ.
