The BMJ Group is a wholly owned subsidiary of the British Medical Association.[1] Established in 1840 with the publication of the first edition of the British Medical Journal, it is now a fully commercial organisation with about 500 staff based in locations around the world.

BMJ’s mission statement is:

"To lead the debate on healthcare and to deliver innovative, useful evidence based knowledge, best practice and learning to doctors, researchers and patients when and where they need it."[1]

BMJ is a global academic publisher providing a wide range of evidence-based medicine products, in print, online and at events, which offer the medical community a comprehensive information support system that improves patient outcomes and the decisions people make every day. The company also offers many other products for physicians, such as BMJ Careers and BMJ Learning.

BMJ's products and services also extend to offer rights and licensing, and targeted advertising and sponsorship opportunities for pharmaceutical and healthcare companies, recruiters, and the general medical community.
