The British Journal of Dermatology

(ISSN: 0007-0963, 1365-2133)

Mission Statement

The British Journal of Dermatology publishes papers on all aspects of the biology and pathology of the skin. Originally the Journal, founded in 1888, was devoted almost exclusively to the interests of the dermatologist in clinical practice. However, the rapid development, since the 1950s, of research on the physiology and experimental pathology of the skin has been reflected in the contents of the Journal, which now provides a vehicle for the publication of both experimental and clinical ethical research and serves equally the laboratory worker and the clinician.

From time to time the Journal publishes reviews, which are usually invited, of recent advances in laboratory or clinical research, contact dermatitis, therapeutics and drug reactions. Regular features include fast-track papers, original articles, concise communications, case reports, book reviews, correspondence, news and notices, and selected society proceedings.
