Techniques articles and videos must be submitted via the JBJS Essential Surgical Techniques Editorial Manager submission site and adhere to the requirements outlined in the Instructions for Authors.

Key criteria for a high-quality EST article include, but are not limited to:
- Clearly written step-by-step instructions (for SP papers) or a comprehensive storyboard (for KP video submissions)
