Lupus Science & Medicine
International knowledge healthcare provider BMJ and the Lupus Foundation of America have joined forces to publish the first open access journal dedicated to the poorly understood and potentially life threatening disease, lupus. It offers timely global access to the latest scientific advances in the disease.
Lupus research is currently published in a wide array of journals, particularly those in the specialties of rheumatology, immunology, dermatology and nephrology. The new online title offers scientists and clinicians a unique focal point for new developments in the understanding and treatment of this complex and unpredictable autoimmune disease, the causes of which are still not clear.
Lupus Science & Medicine is edited by Jill P Buyon, Division Director of Rheumatology, Professor of Medicine at New York University School of Medicine, and Ronald F van Vollenhoven, Professor and Chief, Unit for Clinical Therapy Research, Inflammatory Diseases (ClinTRID) The Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, Sweden.
