Objective:  
The OTA will offer funding for one supplementary issue of the Journal of Orthopaedic Trauma (JOT) annually. The objective is to support the JOT as the official journal of the OTA, and to provide the OTA membership with additional opportunity to publish information with significant impact for the orthopaedic community. 

Key items of consideration in the review process: 
  • The focus of the monograph should be of direct interest and benefit to members of the OTA.
  • The OTA has an interest in selecting topics that are not likely to be published through traditional publication processes.
  • The topic should be of contemporary interest and not well addressed in current literature
Funding:  
The OTA will fund the publication of one electronic supplement in 2018. 

Requirements: 
The primary author of the supplement must be an OTA Member.  
Application:
Please submit a proposal to include: (a) a one-page abstract (b) a one-page description of the expected orthopaedic impact, and (c) a budget. (contact Krista Storm for assistance in budget preparation:  kstorm@lbghealth.com)
