About the Journal
Founded in 1923, the British Journal of Anaesthesia (BJA) remains the oldest and largest independent journal of anaesthesia. The journal strives to support research and discovery in the field by publishing the best original articles in all branches of Anaesthesia. Submitted manuscripts are subject to stringent review to ensure that the journal only contains papers of the highest standard.
The journal is proudly affiliated with The Royal College of Anaesthetists, The College of Anaesthetists of Ireland, and The Hong Kong College of Anaesthesiologists. This affiliation allows college members access to the BJA and its sister title BJA Education. Both journals retain their editorial independence.
Supporting research, discovery and education in everyday practice
The BJA strives to foster and disseminate the best research and educational information in anaesthesia, perioperative medicine, critical care, and pain management in order to improve patient care globally.
All BJA activities are underpinned by our core values of integrity and innovation, and are undertaken to provide support to researchers and practitioners worldwide.
