Guidelines for Submission of Abstracts to The Orthopod

The AOAO is accepting abstract submissions for possible inclusion in future publications of the Academy’s e-newsletter, The Orthopod. Abstracts must be original research on any topic related to the field of orthopedics and may be submitted by any member of the Academy.


Abstract may be a case study or literature review. Abstract must be in the proper format. Click here for an example. (PDF) Abstracts submitted previously in any peer-reviewed journal will NOT be accepted. Submission to The Orthopod does not preclude you from submitting to other publications. Abstracts submitted by residents through the AOAO Case Log System may also be submitted but must first receive Program Director approval. There is no limit to the number of abstracts submitted by each member.


The Editor of The Orthopod will review submissions and determine acceptance for future publications based on relevance of research and quality of content. Either the Editor or the AOAO administrative office will notify abstract authors of acceptance and anticipated publication date.
