About the Journal

Basic information

In 1951, the Revista Brasileira de Anestesiologia (RBA) was established as the official publication of the Brazilian Society of Anesthesiology (Sociedade Brasileira de Anestesiologia – SBA), and in 2019, the Editorial Board decided the journal would be renamed as Brazilian Journal of Anesthesiology (BJAN) in the journal internationalization process.

The journal was internationally acknowledged in the editorial entitled "A New Journal is Born" by Howard Dittrick, editor-in-chief of the Current Researches in Anesthesia and Analgesia (1951;5[30]).

The BJAN is devoted to publishing original scientific manuscripts on Anesthesiology and/or correlated areas by national and international researchers. Its target audience comprises anesthesiologists and other physicians interested in the area. The journal promotes the progress, improvement, and disclosure of anesthesiology, intensive care, treatment of pain, and cardiopulmonary resuscitation.

From 1951 to 1969, the BJAN was published every three months, and since 1970, it has been published every two months. The BJAN was published in Portuguese and English from January 2001 to December 2020, and in Spanish between 2011-2015, electronically.

In 2021, Revista Brasileira de Anestesiologia (0034-7094) was merged into Brazilian Journal of Anesthesiology (0104-0014), adopting English as its main language. The abstracts can be read in Portuguese in the journal's official site.

This journal is peer reviewed with subsidized open access, given the Brazilian Society of Anesthesiology (SBA) pays for the publishing costs. The review is double-blind. Authors do not have to pay for any Article Processing Charge or Open Access Publication Fee.

The abbreviation of its title is Braz J Anesthesiol, which should be used in bibliographies, footnotes, bibliographic references, and legends.
