  • Aims and Scope

    Aims and Scope


    Strategies in Trauma and Limb Reconstruction is a peer-reviewed, open access journal which is dedicated to surgeons, allied medical professionals and researchers in the field of orthopaedics and trauma. The scope of the journal is to discuss the fields of skeletal injury, and the complications thereof, congenital and acquired limb deformities and deficiencies, and orthopaedic-related infection, together with their surgical and non-surgical treatments.

    The journal publishes original articles, reviews, case reports, descriptions of new or recognised treatment techniques, forum discussions of clinical scenarios and relevant correspondence. It aims to provide a widely accessible source of useful information to practitioners in the field through the problem- or technique-based approach of published articles. It will serve as a portal for dissemination of detailed descriptions of decision and surgical pathways, operative technique, and pre- and post-operative strategies to improve patients’ care. Its availability online at http://www.springerlink.com makes it a convenient source for continuing medical education.

    Manuscripts submitted for publication must carry a statement to the effect that all human studies have been reviewed by the appropriate ethics committee and have been performed in accordance with the ethical standards laid down in the appropriate version of the 1964 Declaration of Helsinki. It should also be stated clearly in the text that all persons gave their informed consent prior to their inclusion in the study. Details that might disclose the identity of the subjects in the study should be omitted.

    Reports of animal experiments must state that the "Principles of laboratory animal care" (NIH publication No. 86-23, revised 1985) were followed, as well as specific national laws where applicable.

    The Editors-in-Chief reserve the right to reject manuscripts that do not comply with the above requirements. The author(s) will be held responsible for false statements or failure to fulfil these requirements.
