About the Journal
Trauma International– Unique Journal of Trauma and Injury is open access and Double-Blind peer-reviewed journal being published under the aegis of the Indian Orthopaedic Research Group (IORG), an organisation dedicated to promoting Academic research in India. Trauma International is started in the year 2015 with an idea of a journal that will be international, intelligent, interactive, and at the same time clinically relevant. The editors welcome submissions from all over the world. The stress is on the latest research in the field of Trauma and Injury including emergency care, orthopaedic and surgical care, clinical and radiographic outcomes, surgical techniques and implant design, biomechanics, and biomaterials. All aspects of the case of the injured will fall within the scope of the Journal.
Why the new Journal?
There are two main reasons;  To produce a body of literature that is clinically relevant and to make this knowledge freely accessible to all. Journals have shown trend to move towards a more rigid framework of scientific publications, meanwhile losing the focus that Journals are meant to directly influence and improve patient care.
 Charging for downloading articles imposes another limitation on dispersion and use of knowledge. Trauma International intends to counter these two issues by creating a journal that is intelligent, interactive, and clinically relevant and at the same time completely open access.
Trauma International will be a Semi-Annual (2 issues per year) print and online journal. The online version will be an open-access. The journal publishes original articles, systematic reviews and meta-analyses, instructional lectures, case reports, technical notes and letters to the editor.
