Scientists who plan to publish in the British Journal of Pharmacology (BJP) must read this article before undertaking studies utilizing anaesthetics in mammalian animals. This editorial identifies certain gaps in the reporting of details on the use of anaesthetics in animal research studies published in BJP. The editorial also provides guidance, based upon current best practices, for performing in vivo experiments that require anaesthesia. In addition, mechanisms of action and physiological impact of specific anaesthetic agents are discussed. Our goal is to identify best practices and to provide guidance on the information required for manuscripts submitted to BJP manuscripts that involve the use of anaesthetic agents in studies with experimental animals.
