Dr. Sadick: JDD has been able to present a fresh and dynamic face to the area of clinical and technological studies. In the past, publications often featured studies that do not manifest the latest in the field we work in on a day-to-day basis. We're hungry for knowledge and JDD satisfies that need in an informative manner.
Dr. Sadick: The content of the Journal provides a great mix of medical dermatology, dermatologic oncology, dermatologic surgery, and cosmetic medicine/cosmetic surgery. I am interested in all these subject areas, so I tend to at least scan all the articles. Manuscripts from Europe and other parts of the world provide a different perspective. The many articles on clinical trials and new drugs and devices are especially appreciated.
Dr. Sadick: Just like in our field, JDD has recognized the fact that novel technologies are more evidence- based. This has represented a sea change in the way we think and work. JDD recognized this change and rose to the challenge. The increase in quality over the years has been stayed and shows no sign of stopping.
Dr. Sadick: To be successful in a practice you must recognize that knowledge is key. The ability to learn the latest advances in both surgical and medical therapies and then turn that knowledge into a working protocol makes one feel proud to be in the profession. JDD has that ability to inform, entertain, and educate.
Dr. Sadick: When you distribute to over 23,000 dermatologists around the world it means your voice is heard. Those 23,000 colleagues are able to digest experiences that are directly meaningful to them and as a result, clinical advances are globally united.
Dr. Sadick: One suggestion I have for a better quality publication is the inclusion of theme-based supplements in the future. The cluster of articles often leads to a total immersion in the subject. It stimulates the brain and sometimes is the genesis for a better solution. It's a thought-starter and we need more of that to occur.
