About the Journal
In 1951, the Revista Brasileira de Anestesiologia/Brazilian Journal of Anesthesiology was established as the official publication of the Brazilian Society of Anesthesiology, and in 2019, the Editorial Board decided the journal would be renamed as Brazilian Journal of Anesthesiology, in an 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 Sept-Oct; 5 (30)].
The RBA/BJAN has been devoted to publishing original scientific manuscripts on Anesthesiology and/or correlated areas by national and international researchers. Its target audience comprises anesthesiologists who are members of the Brazilian Society of Anesthesiology and other physicians with interest 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 RBA/Brazilian Journal of Anesthesiology was published every three months. Since 1970, it has been published every two months.
The RBA/BJAN has been published in Portuguese and English since January 2001, and in Spanish between 2005-2015, electronically.
The abbreviation of its title is Rev. Bras. Anestesiol, which should be used in bibliographies, foot notes, bibliographic references and legends.
