The Hagströmer Medico-Historical Library Book Series publishes medico-historical texts, historical monographs and popular history of science and medicine publications.

Do you have a script or a book idea that you think might be suitable for the series?

Please do contact the editor, Hjalmar Fors even if you’re at an early stage in the writing process. The final decision on publication in the book series is, however, made on the basis of a submitted full-text manuscript. Decisions are made by the editor after consultation with the Hagströmer Library council and cannot be renegotiated.

Why should you publish your book in our book series?

All approved manuscripts are peer-reviewed. Therefore, a publication in our series will be a seal of quality for your book. Historical monographs published in the The Hagströmer Medico-Historical Library Book Series are subjected to anonymous double peer review (from 2020). Historical monographs in the series thereby formally qualify as peer rewiewed.  
We can also assist with contacts with suitable foundations for the application of publishing grants and with publishers. All publications in the The Hagströmer Medico-Historical Library Book Series recieves extra exposure through our channels, in addition to the fact that we will of course offer the book for sale at Hagströmer Library!
