British Journal of Haematology

The British Journal of Haematology (Brit. J. Haematol.; IPA: /ˈbrɪtɪʃ dʒɜːrnəl ɒv hiːməˈtɒlədʒi/) is a peer-reviewed medical journal that publishes original research papers in clinical, laboratory and experimental haematology. The journal was established in 1955 and is published by Wiley-Blackwell on behalf of the British Society for Haematology.


The term "haematology" comes from the Greek words "haima" (blood) and "logos" (study). Thus, haematology is the study of blood, blood-forming organs, and blood diseases.
