The peer-reviewed British Journal of Biomedical Science is now predominantly an electronic publication. Although limited quarterly printed circulation will continue, accepted articles appear online at the earliest opportunity (Epub ahead of print). The most recent examples can be found in the list below; however, archival searching, including by year, volume and issue, may be performed using the facility in the column on the right of the screen.
