Founding of the journal Phytomedicine--recollections of the former secretary.
An extensive repository of medicinal plants worldwide--hundreds of works of scientific research and publications--exchanges of experience with scientists from all the countries of the earth: all were prerequisites for the founding of the scientific journal Phytomedicine. For this work, Professor Wagner secured the cooperation of Professor Farnsworth as well as Professor Asakawa. Experts from all over the world joined in, reviewing and assessing the submitted manuscripts. The culmination of this initial work on the then-quarterly publication was the international Congress for Phytomedicine held in Munich in 1996. Scientists from across the world took part in the lecture series and created a community through which Phytomedicine could develop into an international professional journal. I wish the editors and the publishers continued success for the broader benefit of human health.
Dear Professor Wagner,
It has been a pleasure for us to travel part of the path of Phytomedicine with you. We have shared your joy and your frustrations, with each manuscript received, and been deeply impressed by your enormous knowledge in the field of Phytomedicine. Thank you for the many inspiring and occasionally amusing conversations, as well as your well-timed jokes that brightened our daily work. Phytomedicine will surely continue to offer us advice and help for all our daily ailments. We hope you will spend your newly free time enjoying yourself rather than turning to further work. When one door closes, a new one always opens!
In this sense, please enjoy each day to the fullest.
Most warmly, your current team,
Ingrid Maier, Silvia Bacher, Stefanie Koch and Lena Heimhilger
