Extent21 volumes
Admin HistoryThe Clinical and Research Supplement to the St Bartholomew's Hospital Journal was started as an experimental venture by the Editorial Committee in 1963. The objective was, according to the Editorial of the first issue, "to provide a means by which current medical information and research activities within the College and Hospital can be disseminated.." to make departmental activities more widely known and narrow "the increasing gulf between Charterhouse Square and the Hospital". It was also designed to "publish preliminary communications or notes on work in progress; to record the activities of Medical Societies such as the Paget Club, Abernethian Society and Harvey Society; and to provide a medum for the publication of papers by undergraduate students".

The supplement included at the end a list of recent papers published by 'Bart's Men' in various medical and scientific journals. It was funded by a grant of £45 from each of the Board of Governors and the Medical College.

The final issue was published in January 1968 following a review of its purpose by the Publications Committee of the Journal, with the recommendation that selected issues of the Journal be expanded, several times annually, to accommodate sections for clinical and research topics.

The supplements include up to two clinical, medical and scientific articles, periodic summaries of the research being carried out in different departments or a feature article on the research of a particular department, lists of papers published by 'Barts men'. Articles are illustrated with photographs and diagrams.
