BMJ in India

The BMJ launched an India edition of in February 2013. More than 40 000 users visit from India every month and our India edition aims to highlight articles that are most relevant to them.

The BMJ will be publishing more articles aimed at Indian readers. Our news editor, Annabel Ferriman, will be commissioning more Indian news, with our correspondents in India writing up the latest stories. The BMJ’s deputy magazine editor, Richard Hurley, has taken on the additional role of India features and comment editor and will be commissioning comment articles that prioritise Indian healthcare issues. We have also recruited Anita Jain to the position of India editor focusing on research. Anita is based in Mumbai and will guide the development of our editorial output for Indian readers.

BMJ has had staff based in India since 2008 when Prashant Mishra was appointed country manager for India. Prashant is in charge of driving BMJ business in the region and since he joined us the sales and marketing team in India has grown to 14 people. The majority of these staff members work from one of two offices—one in Noida and the other in Mumbai.
