New Rochelle, NY, September 18, 2013— Journal of Men's Health, a peer-reviewed journal now published online with Open Access options and in print by Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., publishers, reflects the urgent priority to improve the health of men around the globe. Volume 10, Issue 1 will be published on the new Journal of Men's Health website at http://www.liebertpub.com/jmh in late September 2013. Journal of Men's Health was formerly published by Elsevier.
"With our new publisher, Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., Journal of Men's Health will include an expanded focus on evidence-based and translational research that will advance knowledge in the field of men's health and ensure optimal patient care," says Ridwan Shabsigh, MD, President of the International Society of Men's Health (ISMH); Chairman, Department of Surgery, St. Barnabas Hospital (Bronx, NY); and Professor of Clinical Urology, Cornell University (New York). Journal of Men's Health is the official journal of the International Society of Men's Health, American Society for Men's Health, and Men's Health Society of India. The vision and mission of the Journal is broadly outlined in a far-reaching editorial by Dr. Shabsigh.
Journal of Men's Health provides in-depth coverage of gender-specific diseases and conditions, such as prostate disease and male sexual dysfunction, along with non-gender-specific diseases and conditions with higher prevalence or special impact in men, including cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndrome, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cancers of the lung, colon, bladder and liver, and schizophrenia and obsessive compulsive disorder.
"Mary Ann Liebert, Inc. brings a wealth of knowledge, energy, passion, and enthusiasm for gender-specific medicine," says Editor-in-Chief Ajay Nehra, MD, Chair, Department of Urology and Director, Men's Health, Rush University Medical Center (Chicago, IL). "This partnership will help to develop the field of men's health and the Journal will provide an important forum for provocative and cutting-edge articles that address men's health issues across the lifespan."
The Journal publishes original research and review articles on population studies, clinical research, guidelines and best practices, professional training and education, and cultural competence in the delivery of health care from adolescence through the older adult years. Peer-reviewed articles will be augmented by provocative editorials and perspectives on new approaches to the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disease that are relevant to all those involved in men's health—clinicians, researchers, educators, and policymakers.
