About the site

In collaboration with specialist organisations, BMJ publishes several leading journals in rheumatology:

Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases, the number one scientific journal for original research in rheumatology – an official journal of EULAR
RMD Open, an open access journal covering the full spectrum of musculoskeletal disorders, rheumatism and connective tissue diseases – an official journal of EULAR

Lupus Science & Medicine, the home for open access global lupus research – the official journal of the Lupus Foundation of America
Short research summaries for patients and non-clinicians are created to accompany selected key research papers published in these journals. These aim to clearly explain the results of the research studies as well as any implications for treatment of the specific condition. The summaries are written in plain language in a consistently structured format and checked for accuracy and readability by experts and patient representatives.
