The Bulgarian Medical Journal (BMJ) is a Central Medical Library periodical at the Medical University of Sofia. It is the successor of the Practical Medicine Journal. Issues are available in a four month frequency and reflect original academic as well as practical scientific developments in all fields of medicine. In every issue the Board of Editors inform readers for the achievements of Bulgarian and foreign specialists. We consider it necessary, because – if the medical science should progress – we need continuity and a memory of the past. Alongside, there should be a knowledge about what has passed from antiquity to the time of high technologies of present day and a tribute to be paid to all the colleagues with contribution to the development of medical science and art.
The Bulgarian Medical Journal will also publish scholarly reviews on modern and avant-garde methods of diagnostics, treatment, and prevention in all fields of medicine. If we note here that fundamental science is a priority of the great and rich countries, nevertheless, theoretical knowledge and information are of paramount importance for general medical education of every physician anywhere. Precisely, through the contemporary significant problems of medical science and practice covered in scholarly reviews, the Bulgarian Medical Journal has the ambition to expand the views of colleagues from various specialties. In the issue subheading about difficult diagnostic problems and rare cases some descriptions of clinical cases find their presentation. In relation to the introduction of contemporary diagnostic and therapeutic methods, the Bulgarian Medical Journal anounces adopted guidelines and consensuses for diagnostics and treatment of socially significant diseases.
The Editorial Board sincerely hopes to offer a medical journal that meets all contemporary requirements, and is as well beneficial and enjoying for all readers!
