About the Journal

Basic information

In 1951, the Revista Brasileira de Anestesiologia 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 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;5(30).

The 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 BJAN was published every three months. 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. A version in Portuguese can be read 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 incurred by the journal. 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.
