Acta Anaesthesiologica Belgica

Acta Anaesthesiologica Belgica is the official journal of the SARB.  The journal publishes 4 issues a year, and first appeared in 1950. Since 1973, all accepted articles are published in English, and this has resulted in increased international standing.

Acta Anaesthesiologica welcomes submissions of original papers in the field of anesthesiology, emergency medicine, and intensive care medicine, in the form of original studies, reviews, or case reports. Each submitted paper is submitted to peer-review by at least two experts in the concerned field. Accepted papers are published free of charge, and are freely accessible on this website. In addition to electronic publishing, hard copies are distributed by conventional mail to the members of the SARB.

The Acta Anaesthesiologica Belgica has a specific website for submission of manuscripts. Any manuscript should be submitted through that route, according to the instructions and guidelines of the journal. Articles that are not submitted in accordance with those instructions will be sent back to the authors for correction.
