Anaesthesia is the official journal of the AAGBI and is international in scope and comprehensive in coverage. It publishes original, peer-reviewed articles on all aspects of general and regional anaesthesia, intensive care and pain therapy, including research on equipment. Although primarily a clinical journal, we welcome submissions of basic science papers if the authors can demonstrate their clinical relevance. Anaesthesia has a very high immediacy factor, demonstrating the relevance of articles to the anaesthesia community, and an impact factor of 3.008. The median time from submission to preliminary verdict is under a week.
Anaesthesia is aimed at consultant and trainee practitioners involved in all branches of anaesthesia, intensive care medicine (including specialists from other disciplines) and pain therapy and also non-medical staff working in those areas.
