Middle East Journal of Anesthesiology

MEJA.jpg​​The Middle East Journal of Anesthesiology (MEJA) is a publication of the Department of Anesthesiology at the American University of Beirut, Beirut, Lebanon. MEJA was founded in 1966 by Dr. Bernard Brandstater who coined its famous motto: ”For some must watch, while some must sleep” (Hamlet-Act. III, Sc.ii) and was given it the symbol of the poppy flower (Papaver Somniferum). This flower is commonly known as the opium poppy and was first cultivated in the Middle East. The journal cover design depicts the Lebanese Cedar Tree and Lebanon’s unique geographical location between the East and West of the Middle East and North Africa. MEJA publishes manuscripts related to the practice of anesthesiology and pain. The journal is published 3 times a year (February, June, October) and is indexed in the Index Medicus and MEDLARS System.
