Elsevier announces new journal partnership for 2008
Date:12/6/2007

Oxford, UK, 6 December 2007 Elsevier is pleased to announce that in 2008 the leading fatty-acid research journal Prostaglandins, Leukotrienes & Essential Fatty Acids (PLEFA) will become the Official Journal of the International Society for the Study of Fatty Acids and Lipids (ISSFAL).

2008 also marks the journals 30th Anniversary. PLEFA was founded in 1978 as Prostaglandins and Medicine by the late David F Horrobin, and published by Churchill Livingstone. PLEFA addresses all aspects of the roles of lipids and their metabolites in cellular, organ and whole-organism function, and places a particular emphasis on human studies. The relevance of this research, including into omega-3 fatty acids, to the development of novel treatments for disease is growing.

Current Editor-in-Chief Mehar S Manku comments, The affiliation of ISSFAL to PLEFA is an important step in both the journal and societys growth and maturity. We warmly welcome ISSFAL members to PLEFA. Many ISSFAL members have previous experience of publication in PLEFA and therefore the association between the parties seems a natural one. We will work together to better understand the role of fatty acids and their several important bioactive metabolites in health and disease. Our common aim is to make PLEFA the leading journal in this field.

In addition, There is no doubt that in science, communication is crucial. ISSFAL has become the recognised scientific society in the field of lipids in nutrition, and as such needs a recognised medium to facilitate that communication. PLEFA is a key journal in this field, and so a link is logical between the two. ISSFAL is therefore pleased to make PLEFA the Official Journal of the Society. I wish every success for this promising joint venture, states Michel Lagarde, President of ISSFAL.

In 2008, all members of ISSFAL will have full online access to PLEFA, including its 30-year archive, online via a new site: www.PLEFA.com
