BMJ Group collaborates with American Diabetes Association to launch new 
title

Open access title to support medical advances in the field through free, 
timely research

International medical publisher, BMJ Group, has teamed up with the 
American Diabetes Association  to publish an open access, online only 
journal.

The new title, which will become the official open access publication of 
the Association, will formally launch in the Spring, as BMJ Open Diabetes 
Research & Care.

Content will cover all aspects of basic and clinical research in type 1 
and type 2 diabetes, and associated complications. All material will be 
subject to rigorous peer review. 

Open access is increasingly becoming common practice in scholarship and 
research. This format will offer clinicians and researchers free and rapid 
access to the latest original research on the treatment and care of the 
disease, the prevalence of which has soared in recent decades. 

In 2011, the numbers of people with diabetes around the globe reached 366 
million, according to data from the International Diabetes Federation, and 
the World Health Organization estimates that the annual death toll from 
the disease will increase by two thirds between 2008 and 2030.

Commenting on the announcement of the new title, BMJ Group Publishing 
Director, Peter Ashman, said: ?The Association is leading the global fight 
against diabetes and we are very proud that they have chosen to 
collaborate with the BMJ Group to launch their latest official 
publication, which will be an important addition to scientific and medical 
publishing.? 

?BMJ Group?s interest in improving healthcare outcomes, and our mission to 
prevent and cure diabetes make a perfect foundation for a new journal,? 
said Robert Ratner,  Chief Scientific & Medical Officer, American Diabetes 
Association.
