Are you interested in the unique opportunity to develop your critical appraisal skills, in addition to your knowledge of the peer review and editorial process, all whilst developing your CV?
The British Student Doctor is a high quality, open access, biannual, peer-reviewed, general medical journal, which publishes articles written primarily by medical students. In addition to publishing original research and systematic reviews, we also provide a platform to medical students to express original thought and reflections on clinical practice, student life and medical education.
All of the journal’s content is fully open access, available without subscription and with no authorship charges. All articles published in The British Student Doctor go through a rigorous peer-review process, led by our student editorial team. The governance of the journal is overseen by the journal’s faculty advisory board of senior academics, and the journal is published by Cardiff University Press and funded by Cardiff University School of Medicine.
