Dr. Katz: “Ed and I have a long history with ACR’s journals and a strong commitment to making the journals successful. We are both PhD scientists who have spent much of our careers working in rheumatology. Ed has done groundbreaking research in work disability, and focuses on social, policy and health services/health economics research. My background is rather eclectic, and my research tends to focus on development and use of patient-reported outcomes, psychological well-being and depression, and the impact of lifestyle factors, such as obesity, physical activity and sleep, on disease outcomes.”
The new ACR Open Rheumatology journal will offer the rheumatology community the opportunity to read more research on wider topic areas with the assurance that the studies have undergone stringent peer review, and more researchers will be able to share their work than ever before. Look for the premiere issue in January.
