About Journal Online-versions
There are online-versions of
three Royal College of Psychiatrists' journals (The
British Journal of Psychiatry, BJPsych
Bulletin and BJPsych Advances). The
online-versions of the journals contain the same text content but
have the additional benefit of a considerable number of features to
improve the ease and speed with which content can be accessed and
searched (see below). BJPsych Open is an (online-only)
open access journal with the same online features (but there
is no print version).
