Description: The BMJ is an international peer reviewed medical journal and
a fully "online first" publication. Our publishing model–"continuous publication"–
means that all articles appear on bmj.com before
being included in an issue of the print journal. The website is updated
daily with the BMJ's latest original research, education, news, and comment
articles, as well as podcasts, videos, and blogs.
All the BMJ's original research is published in full on bmj.com,
with open access and no limits on word counts. We do not charge authors or
readers for research articles, nor for other articles arising from work funded
by open access grants. The BMJ's vision is to be the world's most influential
and widely read medical journal. Our mission is to lead the debate on health
and to engage, inform, and stimulate doctors, researchers, and other health
professionals in ways that will improve outcomes for patients. We aim to help
doctors to make better decisions. The BMJ team is based mainly in London,
although we also have editors elsewhere in Europe and in the US.
The "moving wall" represents the time period between the last issue
available in JSTOR and the most recently published issue of a journal.
Moving walls are generally represented in years. In rare instances, a
publisher has elected to have a "zero" moving wall, so their current
issues are available in JSTOR shortly after publication.
Note: In calculating the moving wall, the current year is not counted.
For example, if the current year is 2008 and a journal has a 5 year
moving wall, articles from the year 2002 are available.
Terms Related to the Moving Wall
Fixed walls: Journals with no new volumes being added to the archive.
Absorbed: Journals that are combined with another title.
Complete: Journals that are no longer published or that have been
combined with another title.
