The international surgical journal with global reach

Submit your Snapshot in Surgery

The Editors of BJS publish supplementary illustrations within the pages of the Journal.

We consider single surgical images in colour that are of educational value to surgeons.

All illustrations must be in colour and of a high quality (>400dpi, preferably TIFF or EPS files) and they must not have been previously published.  Snapshots should be accompanied by a short question that might be general (e.g. what is this condition and how should it be treated?), or multiple choice. The authors must also provide the answers to the quiz using text of no more than 100 words.  Patient material should be accompanied by a signed consent form available here.

Snapshots in Surgery can be submitted online at
