World Allergy Organization Journal
Have you been thinking of submitting a manuscript to the World Allergy Organization Journal. Do you have ideas for possible submissions that you would like to talk over? The Editorial Office welcomes and encourages your questions and suggestions. Send an e-mail to Dr. Lanny Rosenwasser, Editor in Chief, at the Editorial Offices - email@example.com.
The World Allergy Organization Journal, now in its second year of publication, has been expanding with each issue the quality and quantity of original and review articles, editorials, book reviews and case reports. In addition, an expanded representation of submissions from the world's major regions is helping to achieve one of the goals of the Journal's mission:
Another aspect offered by the World Allergy Organization Journal is the possibility of submission of related papers that may be derived from a National or an International Symposium. Like all submissions to the World Allergy Organization Journal, these papers are peer reviewed and must match the Journal's standards of quality. Recent examples of such submissions include a series on non-allergic rhinitis organized by Dr. Michael Kaliner and held late last year (see NAR Consensus Panel Proceedings, Part 1 in the June posting, now online).
Such possibilities for a series of papers to be considered and reviewed by the Journal for possible posting and publication will be arranged by coordination of the symposium organizers and the Editorial Office of the World Allergy Organization Journal. These innovative approaches to understanding worldwide aspects of allergic disease will represent the trademark of the World Allergy Organization Journal.
