The official ASA journal, Anesthesiology, is read by more anesthesiologists throughout the world than any other periodical in the field. Clinicians look to it as the leader for practical information on clinically important advances; academics and research scientists depend on it for detailed reports on frontline research of the highest quality. The journal's diverse, peer-reviewed content includes clinical investigations, case reports, reviews, medical intelligence articles, clinical and laboratory investigations, editorials, correspondence, scientific meeting reports, and book reviews. A supplement containing abstracts of the papers presented at the ASA Annual Meeting is published each September.

British Journal of Anaesthesia
Founded in 1923, one year after the first anaesthetic journal was published by the International Anaesthesia Research Society, the British Journal of Anaesthesia remains the oldest and largest independent journal of anaesthesia. It became the journal of the newly formed College of Anaesthetists in 1990. The College was granted a Royal Charter in 1992. Although there are educational links between the BJA and the College, the journal retains editorial independence.
BJA publishes original articles in all branches of Anaesthesia. Submitted manuscripts are subject to stringent review to ensure that the journal only contains papers of the highest standard.

Canadian Journal of Anesthesia
The Canadian Journal of Anesthesia (CJA) was founded in 1954 as the result of the merger of the News Letter and of the Proceedings of the Canadian Anaesthetists’ Society. Dr Roderick Gordon acted as the first Editor-in-Chief and, at that time, the Editorial Board comprised three members. Dr Douglas Craig took over the position in 1983, followed by Dr David Bevan in 1989, who presided over the Journal’s destiny until the year 2000.
Since its early days, the CJA has become internationally recognized and now receives over two thirds of its submissions from foreign authors. The CJA has published countless articles of extraordinary quality from its contributors across the world. In recognition of this international perspective and exposure, and to pursue this orientation further, the Board is now appointing a number of corresponding board members world-wide, in addition to the 16 members of the Editorial Board from across Canada.
