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.

EAHMH Brill Book Series

The EAHMH is delighted to announce a new partnership with the internationally recognized publisher Brill to continue the Clio Medica series. Clio Medica: Perspectives in Medical Humanities will publish books (monographs and edited volumes) that address current topics of interest in medicine and health care from a historical perspective offering analytical rigor and an opportunity for reflection for its readers.

Scholars working in the history of medicine, social history, cultural history, literature and medicine, medical anthropology or sociology, are welcome to submit manuscripts to a series that aims to cross diverse disciplinary boundaries, while retaining history at its core. The Series’ Volumes are primarily written in the English language, while allowing the opportunity for manuscripts to be submitted in French, German and Spanish.

We welcome proposals and informal enquiries about the series. Please contact the series editors Frank Huisman (, Laurinda Abreu ( or Jonathan Reinarz (

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.

EAHMH Publications

The European Association for the History of Medicine and Health (EAHMH) Publications ceased to exist in 2003. Copyright, which was held by the editors/authors on behalf of the EAHMH, has now been transferred to the authors of the individual books, chapters (in the case of edited collections) and lectures published by EAHMH Publications. Anyone seeking to reproduce material from an EAHMH publication, in whole or in part, is advised to contact the relevant author.
