Scope The BJD strives to publish the highest-quality dermatological research. In so doing, the Journal aims to advance the understanding, management and treatment of skin disease in order to improve the outcomes of patient care. The main focus of the BJD (described in a position statement published in the June 2015 issue) is to publish the highest-quality research encompassing the following: Clinical trials that are registered before recruitment starts and report fully according to the CONSORT guidelines. Clinical studies that include epidemiology, qualitative research and mixed methods that conform to the STROBE and SRQR reporting guidelines. Translational research that describes basic and applied science of potential clinical relevance. Systematic reviews following the PRISMA statement ( ), MOOSE guidelines or the ENTREQ statement. The BJD invites submissions under a broad scope of topics relevant to clinical and experimental research as described in the position statement. The Journal publishes original articles, Reviews, Clinical Guidelines, Research Letters, Perspectives, Case Reports and items of correspondence. The BJD is an official organ of the British Association of Dermatologists, but attracts contributions from dermatology researchers throughout the world. The BJD editorial board and editorial team include outstanding clinical academics, scientists and clinicians from across the globe. The circulation and readership of the BJD are equally international. The overriding criteria for publication are scientific merit, originality and interest to a multidisciplinary audience.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.
