About the Journal

British Medical Bulletin is a multidisciplinary publication, which comprises high quality reviews aimed at generalist physicians, junior doctors, and medical students in both developed and developing countries.

Its key aims are to provide interpretations of growing points in medicine by trusted experts in the field, and to assist practitioners in incorporating not just evidence but new conceptual ways of thinking into their practice.

British Medical Bulletin publishes reviews on a wide range of subjects which are available online as subject-based collections. New review articles are published online as soon as they are ready for publication and users can quickly browse for articles by subject category and online index. 

Please note that the British Medical Bulletin does not accept unsolicited submissions. All published reviews in the journal are commissioned by the Editorial Board.

Printed archival versions of the journal are published quarterly. Each issue contains collections of articles previously published online over the preceding three months.
