International medical publisher BMJ Group will take over production and publication of the Journal of the Royal Army Medical Corps (JRAMC) from March, it has announced.

The publisher fought off competition to win the publishing contract for the quarterly journal, which will add to the specialist titles BMJ Group now publishes in partnership with other professional and academic bodies under its contract publishing programme.

The JRAMC has published a wide range of material relevant to the practice of military medicine dating back to 1903. It contains contributions from all ranks, services, and corps within the UK Defence Medical Services, both regular and reserve, as well as those from civilian authors.

The title aims not only to further current knowledge and expertise in what is now a rapidly developing field, but also to act as an institutional memory for the practice of medicine within the military. It is distributed to members of the Royal Army Medical Corps as well as subscribers from other forces and institutions.

Its editor, Lt Col Jeff Garner said: 'Despite the hi-tech machinery at the military’s disposal, its most valuable assets are the people in it, and anything we can do to maximise their health is important. I am delighted that the Journal is now going to be able to reach out to a wider audience to share the many medical advances that have been made during the past decade and a half of conflict.'
