Journals from BMJ are willing to consider publishing supplements to regular issues. Supplement proposals may be made at the request of:
- The journal Editor, an Editorial Board member or a learned society may wish to organise a meeting and publish the proceedings as a supplement. Sponsorship may be sought.
- The journal Editor, Editorial Board member or learned society may wish to commission a supplement on a particular theme or topic. Again, sponsorship may be sought.
- BMJ itself may have proposals for supplements where sponsorship may be necessary.
- A sponsoring organisation, often a pharmaceutical company or a charitable foundation, may wish to organise a meeting and publish the proceedings as a supplement.
In all cases, it is vital that the journal’s integrity, independence and academic reputation are not compromised in any way.
Supplement proposals should be submitted to the relevant journal Editor or Associate Publisher.
