Anthropology and Medicine, an international interdisciplinary journal, publishes original, peer-reviewed papers within the broad framework of medical anthropology. The journal aims to establish a critical platform for expanding theory and research through "cross-fertilisation of concepts at the borderline of culture and medicine." It attempts to address a wide audience of academics, practitioners, and students in the social sciences and in such medical sciences as primary care, psychiatry, public health, and nursing. The journal has an impressive list of renowned international scholars and researchers, including physician-anthropologist Arthur Kleinman of Harvard, on its 47-member editorial board.
