The British Journal of Anaesthesia (BJA) is one of the oldest journals of anaesthesia in the world, having started publication in 1923 and appearing regularly since then. Considerable changes to its publication frequency and its physical appearance have been made over the years, not least of which has been the recent move to full-colour printing and the changing images on the front cover that have been introduced under the guidance of the Editor in Chief, Ravi Mahajan. In addition, a companion publication was introduced some 10 years ago, Continuing Education in Anaesthesia, Critical Care & Pain (CEACCP), initially with David Rowbotham and now Jeremy Langton as the Editor in Chief. In this editorial, I am presenting my personal view, and the ongoing discussions within the Board, of how BJA should progress over the coming few years.
