European Journal of Dermatology

European Journal of Dermatology

The official journal of the European Dermatology Forum
The European Journal of Dermatology is an internationally renowned journal for dermatologists and scientists involved in clinical dermatology and skin biology.
Original articles on clinical dermatology, skin biology, immunology and cell biology are published, along with review articles, which offer readers a broader view of the available literature. Each issue also has an important correspondence section, which contains brief clinical and investigative reports and letters concerning articles previously published in the EJD.
The policy of the EJD is to bring together a large network of specialists from all over the world through a series of editorial offices in France, Germany, Italy, and Spain.
The European Journal of Dermatology is indexed in Medline and the Current Contents and the continually improving Impact Factor is evidence of its high quality and international recognition.
The online version of European Journal of Dermatology is now available to both readers and authors. All articles published since 1997 can now be accessed online. Recent articles are available by pay per view or by subscription while older ones have free access.
