of the M.B.C - vol. 1° - n° 1 - September 1987
Palermo, 15 marzo 1988
The birth of a new journal is
always a significant event in the scientific community: it may reflect the desider to
embark upon a new course or it may represent the culmination of a long-term commitment of
which it now becomes a concrete testimony.
The Annals of the Mediterranean Burns Club, in the minds of its proponents, are intended
to be the synthesis of both these elements: a stimulus and a commitment for those who
wanted and now enthusistically support the Mediterranean Bums Club, the awareness that
what they are doing represents a course that is already well established.
To reach these aims the annals must be the voice of all MBC members, the testimony of what
they discuss in their meetings, the door to offer hospitality for exchange of views within
and with the Club.
