Springer launches 6 new medical review journals

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.

Current Obstetrics & Gynecology Reports presents recent clinical advances in diagnostic and management techniques pertaining to conditions affecting women, such as endometriosis, infertility, menopause, prenatal medicine and vulval and cervical lesions. The editor-in-chief Dr. Ie-Ming Shih is a professor at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, USA, the top-ranked gynecology center in the United States.

Current Nutrition Reports covers emerging concepts regarding the influence of nutrition on diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer and obesity, as well as the impact of nutrition on genetics, metabolic function and public health. Research conducted by editor-in-chief Dr. Luc Djouss of Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston, USA, focuses on nutrition and genetic factors, as well as the interaction between both on cardiovascular disease risk.

Current Respiratory Care Reports offers timely clinical reviews of recent publications on the assessment, treatment and management of patients with respiratory-related disorders, such as interstitial lung disease, interventional pulmonology, lung cancer, pleural diseases and mesothelioma. Editor-in-chief Dr. Ali Musani is professor at National Jewish Health in Denver, USA, the top-ranked pulmonology institution in the United States.

Current Translational Geriatrics and Experimental Gerontology Reports serves clinicians and researchers who care for patients affected by age-related conditions, including change in cognitive function, the influence of genetics on neurodegenerative disorders, traumatic brain injury and dementia. Dr. Giulio Maria Pasinetti and Dr. Jun Wang are co-editors-in-chief, and both are from Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York, USA, the top-ranked geriatrics institution in the United States.
