The focus should be of direct interest and benefit to international orthopaedic trauma surgeons, and should be of contemporary interest and not well addressed in current literature.

The OTA will offer up to 10 awards that will reduce the rate for the article processing charge (APC) from $1,425 (member rate) to $499.  Details regarding APC fees are noted on the author instructions page of the Editorial Manager manuscript submission site.
