New issue. New look. New features.


It is with great pleasure and satisfaction that we present Eä- Journal of Medical Humanities & Social Studies of Science and Technology’s new issue. The past four months have left us an exceptionally positive experience, having added several thousands of readers from over 100 countries and 5 continents to this project in constant motion.

Ancient, modern and up-to-date, a tour in time.
The current Vol. 1 Nº 3 – April 2010 invites us to a tour in time, taking us from new insights on medieval and Renaissance research problems, Latin American colonial times, Science-Church debates, health and beauty in the 19th century, up to current issues: technological changes on medical practice, health programs, debates over integrative medicine, immigration and health, in-flight risks and responsibilities, and new debates over medical practice. It is an interdisciplinary road that lies in the junction between health, science, technology and society.

What’s new? As we believe in constant growth and improvement, the last few months Eä has added a set of new features:
  • New look. We have changed our look in order to improve reader’s experience.
  • New spaces in social networks. Last March Eä has landed on Twitter, the popular microblogging network. The user @eajournal is daily updated with news, events, online resources, 2.0 trends for science, recent discoveries, among others. This is added to our active presence on Facebook. We invite you all to join is and share information with this community.
  • New apps. Our website grows with the 2.0 wave in order to promote interchange between and with our readers. Now users can upload events, links and publications, and also comment the news posted in our main page. Moreover, this issue we have opened Eä’s forum, a meeting and discussion place where readers may comment articles and exchange ideas, present themselves, meet colleagues and send us suggestions.
  • Editorial quality. To ensure the best editorial standards Eä has adhered to the Council of Science Editors (CSE)’s “Editorial Policy Statements” and the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE)’s “Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts (URM) Submitted to Biomedical Journals” (2008).

Since this journal is the result of the effort of many, we would like to thank our readers, authors, editorial board, reviewers, correspondents and ByBNet for sharing this road with us and help us to build this world. We invite you all to go over the contents of this Vol. 1 Nº 3 and keep being a part in this community.
