Springer is adding six new quarterly clinical review journals to its existing medicine portfolio in March 2012. These new journals will expand the publisher's medical specialty coverage, focusing on dermatology, geriatrics/gerontology, nutrition, obesity, obstetrics/gynecology and respiratory care. Editorial responsibilities will be carried out at the Springer Philadelphia office.
William F. Curtis, Executive Vice President of Clinical Medicine, Biomedicine and Life Sciences at Springer, said, "We are excited to be adding these titles to an already strong portfolio of review journals, and honored to be working with such a distinguished group of editors-in-chief who will oversee their development."
The six new review journals will help physicians keep up to date with a rapidly growing quantity of medical information. Editors-in-chief will specify each journal's thematic structure, tapping international authorities as section editors and expert authors as contributors. Each of the 28 comprehensive review articles published per volume will feature annotated reference lists that highlight new developments and recently published papers of major importance. International editorial boards will ensure that topics are current and include emerging research.
Current Dermatology Reports reviews significant topics in dermatology such as epidemiology, surgery, pharmacology, clinical trial design and pediatrics. The editor-in-chief, Dr. Kim Papp of the University of Western Ontario, London, Canada, has conducted more than 1,700 clinical trials and authored or co-authored nearly 200 publications and abstracts.
Current Obesity Reports highlights the emerging body of interdisciplinary, obesity-related research. The editor-in-chief, Dr. Angelo Tremblay of Laval University, Canada, is an internationally renowned obesity researcher and one of the most highly cited authors in the field.
