Modern Rheumatology publishes original papers in English on research pertinent to rheumatology and associated areas such as pathology, physiology, clinical immunology, microbiology, biochemistry, experimental animal models, pharmacology, and orthopedic surgery.
Case reports and occasional reviews of topics which may be of wide interest to the readership will be accepted. In addition, concise papers of special scientific importance that represent definitive and original studies will be considered.
Letters should be limited to commentaries on previous articles published in Modern Rheumatology and subjects relating to rheumatology and the Japan College of Rheumatology. Rapid Communications should be very short reports of cases or research findings, with no abstract.
Other types of articles may be published at the discretion of the Editorial Board.
Papers are welcomed from members of the Japan College of Rheumatology and nonmembers alike.
Six issues and a supplement are published per year. Papers may be submitted at any time.
