British Medical Journal Townhall at SGT University
The British Medical Journal – One of World’s Oldest General Medical Journals, since 1840 will hold a Townhall at SGT University 21 May 2019, on activities in the CME/CPD space, clinical decision support and Research to Publication.
The BMJ is an advocate of evidence-based medicine. It publishes research as well as clinical reviews, recent medical advances, editorial perspectives, among others.
The BMJ is a weekly peer-reviewed medical journal. It is one of the world’s oldest general medical journals. Originally called the British Medical Journal, the title was officially shortened to BMJ in 1988, and then changed to The BMJ in 2014.
A special “Christmas Edition” is published annually on the Friday before Christmas. This edition is known for research articles which apply a serious academic approach to investigating less serious medical questions.
The BMJ has an open peer review system, wherein authors are told who reviewed their manuscript. Manuscripts chosen for peer review are first reviewed by external experts, who comment on the importance and suitability for publication, before the final decision on a manuscript is made by the editorial (“hanging”) committee. The acceptance rate is less than 7% for original research articles.
