The IJWD publishes articles pertaining to dermatologic medical, surgical and cosmetic issues faced by female patients and their families. We are interested in original research articles, review articles, unusual case reports, new treatments, clinical trials, education, mentorship and viewpoint articles. Articles dealing with ethical issues in dermatology and medical legal scenarios are also welcome.Very important articles will have accompanying editorials.
Topics which our subsections editors look forward to welcoming include:
The Women’s Dermatologic Society founded in 1973, is dedicated to helping dermatologists fulfill their greatest potential and assisting them in making a contribution to our specialty and society.
To achieve this goal, the Society relies on the active participation of its members, who represent a diverse cross-section of professional subspecialties.
The “Images in Women’s Dermatology” section is dedicated to expanding the journal’s outstanding dermatologic clinical images. This series will feature one or two clinical photographs that are relevant to the health of women or their families. The images will illustrate a clinical point that will be useful, not only for dermatologists but also for other clinicians. Each case will have an accompanying multiple-choice question and a short discussion.
