As part of the move to the new BJA website we are reviewing BJA e-Letter processes. At the moment submission of new e-Letters is therefore temporarily disabled. Also some recently accepted e-Letters are not displayed. 

Past e-Letter strings can now be found as part of the Comments feature associated with each article. See here for an example.

We apologise for this temporary disruption. New guidance will be made available to authors and readers shortly.
