Journal of Medical Biography
Published/Hosted by Royal Society of Medicine Press.

This international quarterly journal of the Royal Society of Medicine is concerned with topics of shared interest between the medical sciences and the arts. Aimed at a wide audience among both the medical and non-medical community - including clinicians, scientists, historians, archivists, librarians, and others with an interest in biographical aspects of medical history - it focuses on the lives of those in and associated with medicine and their significance in various contexts. Each issue is generously illustrated and divided into sections. These reflect different facets of biographical interest, such as medical figures felt to be legendary, outstanding or otherwise significant for distinguished or definitive work. The sections also cater for the less well known, whose lives - or aspects of whose lives - provide food for intellectual curiosity. Examples in this category are the 'truants' who have enriched non-medical areas (e.g. literature, music and the visual arts), famous patients, pioneers and entrepreneurs. Also published are biographical accounts from more indirect quarters, such as bibliographic and iconographic analysis, medical collections, and places of biographical significance.
