The Journal of Drugs in Dermatology(JDD) and the field of dermatology are now more international than ever before.
This is due to both the popularization of international conferences, congresses and workshops as well as to the growth of tele-dermatology and tele-medicine.
In addition, during the past year, JDD has worked to create an alliance with leading dermatologic societies.
I am pleased to report that this endeavor has been quite successful. JDD has initiated partnerships with approximately 30 international dermatology societies and JDD's Senior Editors have agreed to make complimentary journal e-subscriptions available to these societies' members.
We're thankful that so many societies have joined our international alliance, including:
  • Argentine Society of Dermatology
  • Caribbean Dermatology Association
  • Chilean Society of Dermatology and Venereology
  • Colombian Society of Dermatology
  • Dermatological Society of Thailand
  • Indonesian Society of Dermatology & Venereology
  • International Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ISDS)
  • International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery
  • Mexican Academy of Dermatology
  • North American Hair Research Society
  • Philippine Dermatological Society
  • Romanian Society for Aesthetic Medicine and Dermatologic Surgery
  • Slovak Dermatovenereological Society
  • Society of Dermatovenereology (Turkey)
  • Tunisian Society of Dermatology and Venereology
  • These partnerships, and ones being finalized as this issue goes to press, will not only provide JDD to thousands of dermatologists practicing worldwide, but we are confident that it will also forge an exchange between international and American dermatologists.
    It is our goal to reach 90 percent of dermatologists worldwide by the end of this year. This level of access is a milestone in medicine and in dermatology.
