The Lancet began in London, in 1823. The familiar plain, newspaper-style cover is found in doctors' offices around the world and continues to grace the shelves of most medical libraries. In recent years, The Lancet Publishing Group has spun off subtitles: The Lancet Oncology began in September 2000, followed by The Lancet Infectious Diseases in April 2001 and The Lancet Neurology in May 2002. Eye-catching covers and extensive use of colored illustrations differentiate The Lancet's offspring from their parent.
