Praise for the Journal
"In medicine's high-tech environment, Literature & Medicine is a tangible way of expressing the totality of needs of both patients and medical staff. As a scholarly, peer-reviewed journal, it fills an important subject domain in a growing and important specialty. At the Mayo Clinic, we have two institutional subscriptions to Literature and Medicine."
-J. Michael Homan
