Dynamis will consider for publication reviews and essay reviews of studies on the History of Medicine and Science. Before submitting a review, it is necessary to contact the Reviews’ Editor, José Pardo Tomás. The file should be attached in a PC-compatible format (preferably RTF). The heading of the review should include the publication data for the book, the ISBN number and the price, in the format of the Style Guidelines of DYNAMIS. The recommended length of reviews is between 600 and 1,200 words. The sending of reviews does not automatically guarantee their publication. Authors should provide their ORCID code.
Essay reviews are critical reviews within the scope of the journal which include an update of the subject addressed by the reviewed texts. Thus they can contribute to general historiographic debates and offer further recent references. The length of the essay should stay between 2,500 and 5,000 words. References should be made following our Style Guidelines. It is recommended that the authors propose a title for their essays. Authors should provide their ORCID code.
Guidelines for reviews and essay-reviews
Reviews should avoid the use of quotes and footnotes. They begin with the reference to the book under review as a heading, e.g.,
Varios Autores, eds. La experiencia de enfermar en perspectiva histórica. Actas XIV Congreso de la Sociedad Española de Historia de la Medicina. Granada: Universidad de Granada; 2008. ISBN 978-84-338-4858-1. In the case of essay-reviews, a title is required for the text, and footnotes and quotes can be used. They should conform to the remaining publication guidelines on manuscript presentation, typography and style.
Books for review must be submitted to:
