Core texts

Other places to look for excellent material

  • Hektoen International has a truly impressive range of articles right across the spectrum
  • Aeon is a digital magazine with a Health channel (and science, technology, psychology) channels
  • The NYU School of Medicine Litmed database is large and very impressive, but word-based, given that it covers all types of work, and leans toward the academic rather than effusive (about). It doesn’t show the things it’s talking about, but could generates scores to hundreds of ideas.
  • The Milan Collective (Newcastle not Italy) has a useful series of headings to populate – but not much (no?) content so far.
