    Journal of Foot and Ankle Research (JFAR) has been launched at www.jfootankleres.com.

    This journal , the official journal of the Australasian Podiatry Council and the Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists (UK), encompasses all aspects of policy, organisation, delivery and clinical practice related to the assessment, diagnosis, prevention and management of foot and ankle disorders.

    The journal encourages submission from all health professionals who manage lower limb conditions, including podiatrists, nurses, physical therapists and physiotherapists, orthopaedists, manual therapist and general medical practitioners, as well as health researchers concerned with foot and ankle care.

    All articles published in JFAR are accessible free of charge, and will be included in PubMed and archived in PubMed Central.

    The launch issue contains the following papers:

    Note that because JFAR is continuously published, there is no volume/issue cycle. To receive email notification of the latest papers published in the journal, go to:

  2. I registered with this today and was absolutely astounded that under "job type" there was no option for "podiatrist". :sinking:

    Oh well, never mind.

    The sign-up page is the same for all journals under the BioMed Central banner, so because we are the first foot-specific BioMed Central journal, there isn't an option to select podiatrist. This is being rectified.

    Publish your case reports with Cases Journal

    Dear colleagues,

    Journal of Foot and Ankle Research does not publish case reports. Instead, we recommend that authors submit them to Cases Journal, an open access journal that only publishes case reports.

    The editor of Cases Journal is Dr Richard Smith, formerly the editor of the BMJ. The aim of the journal is to establish a searchable database of thousands of case reports from all fields of health care.

    In a recent editorial, Dr Smith states that:

    "Cases Journal aims to celebrate the extraordinary in the ordinary. When we look closely every case is special and different just as every person is special and every face is different...our challenge, which I relish, is to change a medical mindset that says that writing and publishing are for “pointy heads” not for ordinary practitioners" (more...)​

    All foot and ankle case reports will be linked to the JFAR website.

    Kind regards,

    The JFAR editorial team

    Just a reminder you still must register with PORTAL (you can register FREE as a NON MEMBER) to "buy" this lecture - no fee's will be charged. CPE points are only attributable to NSW Podiatrists for this one.

    Enjoy it is a great lecture....and if you are coming to the GOLD COAST Podiatry COnference be sure to check out the Great Debate on the Friday afternoon where there will be more JFAR and evidenced based goodness!

    Cases now available on JFAR blog

    Dear colleagues,

    Journal of Foot and Ankle Research (JFAR) does not publish case reports. Instead, we encourage authors to submit them to Cases Journal or the Journal of Medical Case Reports.

    However, to assist our readership, we have recently added a blog feature to the JFAR website, where we will link all relevant open access case reports. You can find the "Latest case reports" link under the "Latest news" link on the right hand side of the main webpage (www.jfootankleres.com).

    We have just uploaded 30 cases to the blog, which you can view at:


    Each blog entry links to the full text PDF of the paper.

    Kind regards,

    The JFAR editorial team
