    • Description:
      Emerging and reemerging infections respect no national boundaries; therefore, they were an appropriate topic for the first “global medical theme issue,” introduced in January 1996. This global theme issue was conceived by three editors, Linda Hawes Clever, The Western Journal of Medicine, Magne Nylenna, Journal of the Norwegian Medical Association, and George D. Lundberg, Journal of the American Medical Association, who in 1995 invited the editors of 78 journals worldwide to participate. A year later, 36 journals in 21 countries on six continents published more than 200 articles pertaining to emerging and reemerging global microbial threats. The articles addressed topics ranging from factors contributing to increasing antimicrobial resistance to the impact of global warming on infectious disease. While some solutions were suggested, the global issue primarily served as a call to medical communities and people worldwide to identify contributing factors and begin to develop strategies to control emergent infections.

      Following this note is a bibliography of articles published by the 36 journals participating in the global theme issue.
