  • Aims and Scope

    Aims and Scope


    This journal intends to review the most significant recent developments in the field of dermatology. By providing clear, insightful, balanced contributions by expert international authors, the journal aims to serve all those involved in the diagnosis, treatment, management, and prevention of dermatologic conditions.

    We accomplish this aim by appointing international authorities to serve as Section Editors in key subject areas across the field, such as epidemiology, surgery, pharmacology, clinical trial design, and pediatrics. Section Editors select topics for which leading experts contribute comprehensive review articles that emphasize new developments and recently published papers of major importance, highlighted by annotated reference lists. We also provide commentaries from well-known figures in the field, and an Editorial Board of more than 20 internationally diverse members suggests topics of special interest to their country/region and ensures that topics are current and include emerging research.
