British Journal of Industrial Medicine: The First 25 Years

Abstract

`The new journal (wrote the Lancet in 1944), edited by Dr. Donald Hunter, closely resembles the Archives of Disease in Childhood in format (with a touch of lead in its cover) and is also published under the auspices of the British Medical Association. It is intended for both whole- and part-timer—for the mass of doctors who cannot do their best for their patients unless they study the conditions in which people work, in factory, mine, shipyard, bus, office or shop. Many of these doctors are cut off from lectures and libraries—more especially in war-time—and have little time for selecting their reading from a multitude of journals. If the new quarterly helps them to bring and keep their knowledge of industrial problems up to date the trouble of launching it in war-time will be well repaid.'
