BMJ Author Hub

The quality of a research paper depends primarily on the quality of the research study it reports. However, there is also much that authors can do to maximise the clarity and usefulness of their papers.  

We built the BMJ Author Hub to help researchers, academics, and authors.

Research integrity

At BMJ, we take a positive and proactive approach to preventing and addressing errors and misconduct. Our highly skilled staff work to raise awareness of best practices and ethical conduct in research, investigate unethical practices, provide training and investigation resources, and act as an advisory service for staff and editors.

Open Access

Open Access promotes knowledge and accelerates discoveries

Researchers, authors, institutions, and funders need the best experience of submitting, processing and publishing their work. For that to happen, they need the option to publish open access. That’s what we offer. 

BMJ is a pioneering publisher and champion of open access research. We make academic research freely accessible and discoverable across all our journals with hybrid subscription models.

"We really value the professionalism and content from BMJ."
