The purpose of the African Journal of Anaesthesia and Intensive Care is to provide a medium for the dissemination of original works in Africa and other parts of the world about anaesthesia and intensive care including the application of basic sciences
nthropology & Medicine is an interdisciplinary journal which expands upon the growing theory and research linking anthropology with medicine. It publishes original papers and reviews within the broad framework of medical anthropology, for a world-wide readership. Whilst biomedicine continues to grow in its technological sophistication and a proliferation of disease categories, anthropology has extended its boundaries to embrace newer frameworks. The globalisation and politics of biomedicine, narrative approaches to illness, new reproductive technologies, indigenous African and Asian medicines, local critiques of professional healing systems, modern and post-modern identities of individual states and their impact on sickness, together with developments that link ethology and population genetics to medicine are examples of topics addressed by the Journal. Anthropology & Medicine seeks to establish a critical platform for this diversity and promotes a cross-fertilisation of concepts at the borderland of culture and medicine. The journal solicits original contributions that advance the field. These could include bold innovations in methods or significant newer findings. Original and critical review commentaries are also welcome. The journal does not accept routine ethnographies and standard health services research unless authors can argue otherwise. In addition to peer-reviewed articles, Anthropology & Medicine maintains a generous book reviews section and news about conferences, workshops and relevant courses. The journal also features regular guest edited thematic issues on contemporary topics. See inside back cover for details. Anthropology & Medicine addresses academics, practitioners and students in the following areas: medical anthropology; social anthropology; the anthropology of conflict, trauma and reconciliation; medical sociology; primary care medicine; psychiatry; psychology; psychotherapy; ethology; public health and nursing; social history; social work; social geography; and development studies. Anthropology & Medicine is subject to a peer review process and is published three times a year, in April, August and December. An annual index and title-page are bound into the December issue. The Section of Transcultural Psychiatry of the World Psychiatric Association endorses the publication of Anthropology & Medicine as a significant contribution to the scientific literature of transcultural psychiatry and its related disciplines.
