The BMJ cover

The BMJ is one of the most influential and respected general medicine journals in the world.

Evidence is the foundation of the journal’s content, which includes original research, reviews, expert analysis, authoritative opinion, medical education and much more. 

To expedite new research evidence into clinical practice, The BMJ publishes Rapid Recommendations. Consisting of doctors, researchers and patients, the Rapid Recommendations team identifies and confirms which studies might change practice and are of interest to readers. Researchers then perform systematic reviews on the benefit and harm of the intervention, using a GRADE approach to evaluate the evidence. This results in trustworthy practice recommendations, evidence summaries, and decision aids.
