Editorial Board

The role of the Editorial Board is to produce the best journal possible for readers of the journal. BMJ encourages editorial freedom and agrees to fully support editorial decisions and potentially controversial expressions of opinion by the Editors provided they are evidence based. In turn, our Editors agree to abide by BMJ’s policies and procedures. Our Editors also agree to seek and engage a broad and diverse array of authors, reviewers, editorial board members and readers. Our editorial board for BMJ Innovations has been specifically chosen to bring expertise from academia and research, innovation methodology and implementation, industry and public policy across a broad geographical representation which we feel is important to ensure a balanced assessment of submissions to the journal. All BMJ Innovations Editorial Board members agree and adhere to the BMJ Editor Roles and Responsibilities guidelines; this includes our Editorial Board policies on confidentiality, peer review and timeliness and competing interests.
