Special issue on Palaeo Biomedicine - an evaluation of ancient medical practices and modern analytical techniques
It is envisaged that this special issue will promote the publication of articles that address ancient sources of medical information or alternatively determine the efficacy/toxicity of ancient remedies, or indeed assess the use of modern analytical techniques in the interpretation of ancient material. In so doing it may be possible to rediscover natural tried and tested forms of medication that can be used to improve human health, to strengthen the innovative potential of bio-medical companies, and to educate those involved in the assessment of ancient materials in the correct use of bio-medical techniques.
Detailed formatting instructions, in particular, the formatting of references, can be found in http://www.medsci.org/ms/author.
Full texts of published articles will appear in PubMed Central, the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) digital archive of biomedical journal literature, and abstracts in PubMed.
All inquiries should be sent to the guest editor at the above address.
