Munich, July 15, 2014 - Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, is pleased to announce the launch of open access journal Burnout Research.
Burnout has proven its global significance and impact over the last years, posing major challenges for society. Not only in the scientific community, but also at a governmental level and within public and private organizations, the significance of the issue is acknowledged and there is a growing interest in and need for developing interventions to reduce prevalence rates. As such, increasing amounts of cross-disciplinary research is being conducted across the globe to gain further understanding of the phenomenon, its symptoms and ways of treatment.
"With the launch of Burnout Research, we want to create one central place where the larger burnout community, from researchers to practitioners, policy-makers and other individuals outside the scientific community, can share new ideas and information, discuss and debate theories and applications, and propose new directions for research and interventions," explained Editor-in-Chief of the journal, Professor Christina Maslach of the University of Berkeley, California.
Frauke Muenzel, Publisher at Elsevier said, "As the first journal dedicated to understanding the causes of burnout and potential solutions to the problem, Burnout Research aims to be a global forum, not only for researchers, but also for those directly or indirectly effected by burnout. We are happy to support the editors in making the journal's content as widely available as possible."
Articles published in Burnout Research are published open access. The first issue of Burnout Research is now available on ScienceDirect.
