Skin Spectrum Quarterly™: The Journal of Ethnodermatology is a new worldwide dermatology journal that focuses on the emerging subspecialty of "Ethnodermatology." The journal, from the same group that produces Derm.city, will be distributed in print and digitally and will champion "Skin Health for All," with a special focus on understudied groups of patients with richly pigmented skin (Fitzpatrick types IV-VI).
Skin Spectrum Quarterly™ will publish high-quality original research, review articles, correspondence, clinical news with commentary, recent book and publication reviews, editorials, and first-person opinion articles. The journal's interests lie at the intersection of dermatology, race, and culture.
We invite authors to submit articles reflecting the journal's focus and interests. All submitted articles will undergo an independent, rigorous peer-review process prior to acceptance. To request more information on submitting an article, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
