The Student BMJ February 22, 2008

Posted by tomography in web 2.0.

About three weeks ago I mentioned to you a new Web 2.0 tool for medical students that was created by medical students. That was the Lancet Student. Now I offer you another website that might be of medical students’ interest, the Student BMJ. So what is the Student BMJ? It is a monthly, open-access medical journal aimed at a student reader population, published by the same group that puts out the prestigious British Medical Journal. It was founded in 1995, so it has got a lot of history behind it. Though the Student BMJ does not publish original research articles written by students, they can still take part in shaping the journal. Articles can be sent in on various topics, and after they are examined by a student review board, they will be publish both online and on paper. The website itself offers interesting articles written by medical students, RSS feed, a quiz with the correct answers, and a separate section called Paper Plus, where an expert reviews a recently published BMJ article for the benefit of medical students. All editions can be downloaded in pdf format free of charge, even previous issues! Here is the cover of the latest Student BMJ:

And guess what? They have a job for you! This would probably be a power blogger’s dream job: “…the highly reputed Student British Medical Journal is looking for a new student editor.”
