Founded in 1923, one year after the first anaesthetic journal was published by the International Anaesthesia Research Society; BJA remains the oldest and largest independent journal of anaesthesia.


Since April 2013, the BJA has been the official Journal of the College of Anaesthetists of Ireland. Although there are links between BJA and the College, the Journal retains editorial independence. With an Impact Factor of 4.354, the BJA ranks an impressive third out of 28 journals in the Anesthesiology category.
