Medical History

The EAHMH encourages publication in the journal Medical History. Medical History is a refereed journal devoted to all aspects of the history of medicine and health, with the goal of broadening and deepening the understanding of the field, in the widest sense, by historical studies of the highest quality. It is also the journal of the European Association for the History of Medicine and Health. The membership of the Editorial Board, which includes senior members of the EAHMH, reflects the commitment to the finest international standards in refereeing of submitted papers and the reviewing of books. The journal publishes in English, but welcomes submissions from scholars for whom English is not a first language; language and copy-editing assistance will be provided wherever possible.

Publications Arising From EAHMH Conferences

An edited collection, drawing together some of the papers given at the 2007 EAHMH conference in London has recently been published. Environment, Health and History, edited by Virginia Berridge and Martin Gorsky of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, brings together a wide temporal range of historical analysis examining the relationship, sometimes distant, and sometimes close, between concerns about the environment and about health.
