The International Journal of Urologic History (IJUH) is currently published online in English on a semi-annual basis. IJUH invites scholars to submit unpublished papers for consideration over a broad range of topics to be read and enjoyed by a diverse readership including the lay public, students of medicine, physicians and health care practitioners, academicians, and educators in the history of medicine. The editors will strongly consider works that demonstrate primary research of undiscovered, uncatalogued, or non-internet-based archives; works of an international, multi-institutional, and collaborative effort; novel or computational methods of analysis; and historical works of interest to a broad community.
