Announcements for 2014: Updated submission requirements, publication schedule, and open call for ‘Topic Reviews’

In 2014, the Foot and Ankle Online Journal will begin publishing all articles on a quarterly basis. In anticipation of this change, and in order to streamline the editing and peer review process, several article submission guidelines have been updated. Prior to submitting an article, please review these changes and ensure that your article meets the new guidelines, here.

Included in each quarterly issue will be a feature “Topic Review” article. These reviews will serve as a literature update for a variety of topics in foot and ankle medicine and surgery. The Journal is now accepting topic review articles for consideration of the quarterly feature. If you are submitting an article for topic review, please include “Topic Review:” at the beginning of the article title, and indicate in your submission request that this is a topic review.

Articles submitted in the first quarter may be published in the second quarter, and so on. Please note that submitting an article does NOT guarantee that it will be published the following quarter, as each article is subject to review and revision prior to publishing. Quarterly publishing schedule is as follows:
