Dear authors and readers,

The Foot and Ankle Online Journal (FAOJ) has just wrapped up it’s 13th year of providing open access, peer-reviewed articles to the international foot and ankle medical community. The journal grew from the roots of a blog by Dr. Al Kline, titled the Podiatry Internet Journal. The blog quickly expanded to become the Foot and Ankle Online Journal within its first year of publishing, with a mission of providing open-access peer-reviewed case reports. As the journal continued to grow and gain readership, it was adopted as the official journal of the International Foot & Ankle Foundation for Education and Research in 2008.

As of this writing, the journal has published over 500 articles, sees approximately 40,000 readers per month, and accepts a variety of submissions including case studies, meta-analyses, and original research articles. Just as the Podiatry Internet Journal had outgrown its utility, the editorial board of the FAOJ has made the decision to retire the journal to put its resources towards a new journal, titled the Journal of the International Foot & Ankle Foundation. This new journal is anticipated to launch by the end of 2021. The FAOJ will continue at this webspace as an archive.

The final issue of the FAOJ was published at the end of 2020, and the journal will therefore no longer be accepting new submissions.

We sincerely thank you for your past support and contributions and look forward to your participation with IFAF’s new journal in the future.
