"Gesnerus is the official journal of the Swiss Society for the History of Medicine and Sciences (SSHMS). It publishes original articles, short communications and documents on different periods and aspects of the history of medicine and sciences and also focuses on theoretical and social aspects of this subject.

Gesnerus likewise contains reports and announcements concerning new developments and activities in its field. A full book review section keeps readers informed of new publications. The languages of publication are German, French, Italian and English.

During [the first three years after publication] only the summary of the articles and a list of the books reviewed are accessible. Three years after publication, however, the single issues are available free of charge here in the Archive of the Gesnerus website."
