Building Diversity at Medical Humanities

We’ve spent the last four years working toward social justice, accessibility, global outreach, and inclusivity. We’ve welcomed research and writing from the LGBTQ and disability community, and included podcasts with activists and others dedicated to equity and justice. But there have remained hurdles for many researchers across the world. Those in under-funded areas, in vulnerable communities, and in the Global South struggle to be represented in our journals.
We at Medical Humanities want to create a path to publication through the utility of Special Issues.
We are also looking for Medical Humanities submissions from all the wonderful and varied fields that make up our journal—from history and literature to healthcare, anthropology, and sociology.
Join the conversation @MedHums_BMJ and read the blog post:


Medical Humanities accepts submissions of a wide range of article types, including Original Reports, Review Essays and Current Controversies.
