Affinity and Society Publishing

A professional partner

One size rarely fits all. A genuine partner adapts to fit your needs rather than requiring you to fit a standard model.

Join us and become part of a network of influential society journals, working together through shared values, to benefit healthcare.

Strategic guidance

The market for medical journals has never before offered so many challenges – or opportunities.

Our role is to encourage innovation and experimentation, to help you achieve both your commercial and non-commercial goals. Our specialist focus and our blend of careful but creative thinking enable the journals we publish to thrive as the world changes around us.

We will help you identify and explore new business models, and provide comprehensive reporting to enable you to evaluate the success of the strategies we recommend. We respect the independent value of your brand and will work with you to support its protection and growth.

Business development

Maximising the readership and impact of scholarly content is key to our mission.

Our dedicated publishing team works closely with journal editors and owners to support, advise and challenge them – helping each journal progress and fulfil its potential. As an integral part of the medical community, we understand the changing needs of your authors and readers; we can help you nurture existing journals and share the risks of developing new titles. Our customer database is one of our greatest assets, providing our partners with a ready-made audience and a rich source of new sales opportunities.

From media relations and advertising to managing conferences and providing online learning tools, our range of experience and services offer ways to develop new business around your core content.

Editorial excellence

The quality and relevance of journals, developed through understanding and responding to the needs of individual communities of authors and readers, will remain the single most important factor in their long-term success.

BMJ Journals is one of the world’s most respected medical publishers, publishing journals for over 150 years. Our proven processes and technological expertise ensure a smooth experience for your authors, editors and readers. We are known for the high quality of our publications, and our commitment to ethical business culture and practices.
