Abstracting and indexingEdit

According to the Journal Citation Reports, the journal has a 2018 impact factor of 11.645.[1]

ControversyEdit

In October 2018, over 170 academics signed a letter to the journal complaining after it ran an opinion piece by Aseem Malhotra. The group argued that the article made the "misleading and wrong" statement that saturated fat did not cause heart disease.[2] Fiona Godlee, editor-in-chief of The BMJ defended the BJSM's right to challenge "the status quo in some settings".[2]
