ProQuest and global healthcare knowledge provider BMJ have announced a multi-year agreement that will enable BMJ’s complete collection of medical journals to be added to ProQuest collections.

BMJ publishes in 11 languages and has a global audience of health professionals, students, patients, academic institutions, and governments. Its expertise includes cutting-edge research, medical education, decision support and quality improvement to help medical organisations and clinicians tackle today’s most critical healthcare challenges. 

BMJ publishing director Peter Ashman said: ‘We are delighted to be partnering with ProQuest to make the content of our world-leading collection of specialist journals available to new audiences. We see this partnership as an endorsement of BMJ's credentials as an important global knowledge provider and our commitment to ensuring that healthcare professionals globally have the knowledge to improve patient outcomes.’

From April, more than 60 BMJ journals will be made available for researchers as part of ProQuest’s health and medical research collections. 

The list includes the flagship journal The BMJ, and leading specialist journals from many prestigious medical societies. ProQuest will make BMJ content accessible alongside other premier scholarly journals as well as dissertations, clinical training videos, medical reference books, reports and more in ProQuest medical and nursing databases enhancing the research experience.

‘BMJ has been advancing the knowledge of medical professionals for more than 170 years and together with ProQuest’s breadth of medical collection titles, this diverse range of content will provide a richer research experience and meet the changing expectations of researchers, educators and students,’ added Niels Dam, vice-president of product management at ProQuest.
