International Journal of Paleopathology

The official journal of the Paleopathology Association (PPA) has finally been launched.  The first issue of the new International Journal of Paleopathology was published by Elsevier in March, but the entire issue is now open-access here via ScienceDirect.  The journal is helmed by the grand doyenne of bioarchaeology, Jane Buikstra, and the list of associate editors reads like a who's who in palaeopathology.

I haven't had time to pore through the issue yet, but I'm particularly excited about Mary Lewis's "Tuberculosis in the non-adults from Romano-British Poundbury Camp, Dorset, England."  Hopefully after I get my isotope articles out, I'll find some time to write up my Roman with rheumatoid arthritis for the IJPP.
