Now available - complete access to the archive for this journal click here for more information

Tropical Diseases Bulletin is the leading bibliographic and abstracts database for research on infectious diseases and public health in developing countries and the tropics. 

The Bulletin has been providing the latest information on infectious diseases and public health from epidemiology to diagnosis, therapy to disease prevention for over 100 years with a particular focus on patients and populations in the developing world, tropics and subtropics. Local as well as international papers are featured. As well as tropical medicine, it also includes related aspects of travel medicine and the health of marginalized populations: immigrants, refugees and indigenous peoples.
 
The Tropical Diseases Bulletin is updated weekly online, delivering highly-targeted, searchable summaries covering key English and non-English language journal articles, reports, conferences, theses and books.
 
Created and indexed by subject specialists Tropical Disease Bulletin provides access to these abstracts alongside comprehensive indexing and classification codes. The database includes a fully searchable backfile to 1973 of over 400,000 abstracts with approximately 45,000 new records added each year.
 
Tropical Diseases Bulletin is also available in print as a monthly journal with author, subject and serials cited indexes. The print backfile goes back to 1912 and was made into a fully searchable electronic database as part of the Global Health Archive.
