Additional recommended knowledge

The journal has its editorial offices at the Faculdade de Medicina de Ribeirão Preto, Universidade de São Paulo, in Ribeirão Preto, state of Sao Paulo, Brazil.

It was founded in the 1960s as Revista Brasileira de Pesquisas Médicas e Biológicas, a journal in Portuguese serving SBIC, by Dr. Michel Jamra. In 1981, ABDC assumed its publication, accepting papers in English only, with the aim to transform it rapidly into a peer-reviewed, indexed, high-impact publication. The initial editors were three professors and scientists from the Faculty of Medicine of Ribeirão Preto, Lewis Joel Greene (an American-born biochemist), Eduardo Moacyr Krieger (a physiologist) and Sérgio Henrique Ferreira (a pharmacologist). Of the original trio, only Dr. Greene remains as editor.

Its abbreviated title is Braz. J. Med. Biol. Res.. The journal is indexed by MEDLINE, Index Medicus, Science Citation Index, Current Contents Life Sciences, Biological Abstracts, Excerpta Medica, PsycInfo and LILACS.

The Brazilian Journal was one of the very first in Brazil to be published on-line on the Web with a open access model, through a 1996 project of the e*pub on-line publishing group directed by Dr. Renato M.E. Sabbatini at the Center for Biomedical Informatics of the State University of Campinas. It is now published as part of the Scientific Electronic Library (SciELo) project by Latin American and Caribbean Center on Health Sciences Information and Foundation for Research Support of the State of São Paulo (FAPESP).
