General medical journals

Respiratory articles and reviews are also published in general journals, but the competition to publish in general journals such as the New England Journal of Medicine and the Lancet is generally much greater. These articles mainly tend to be large clinical trials or papers that are of interest to wide groups of healthcare professionals and will often span primary and secondary care. Many of the general journals triage papers and will provide rapid decisions about the suitability of a paper before the peer-review process.
