Clio Medica: Studies in the History of Medicine and Health is published in affiliation with the European Association for the History of Medicine and Health from now onwards.

This peer reviewed series invites scholars from the humanities and health care professions to share narratives and analysis on health, healing, and the contexts of our beliefs and practices that impact biomedical inquiry. The series aims to address current topics of interest in medicine and health care from a historical perspective offering analytical rigor and an opportunity for reflection to 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.

Authors are cordially invited to submit proposals and/or full manuscripts to either the series editor Jonathan Reinarz or the Publisher at Brill Alessandra Giliberto.

Brill is in full support of Open Access publishing and offers the option to publish your monograph, edited volume, or chapter in Open Access.
