Asclepio. Revista de Historia de la Medicina y de la Ciencia, was born in 1948 with the title Archivo Iberoamericano de Historia de la Medicina y Antropología Médica. Particularly devoted to Spanish, European, and Latin American science, Asclepio includes original papers on the history of science, echoing the various historiographic trends in our field of study. It is half-yearly directed to an audience specialized in the history of science, but also to variously educated scientists who may find in history elements for epistemological and social reflection in their scientific work.
