E & D Announcement

Dear Colleagues:

With great enthusiasm for the future of the journal, I am happy to present to you the first issue of Volume 25 – a volume year full of promise for the online growth of our journal.

The Ethnicity & Disease editorial board, along with the board of trustees of the International Society on Hypertension in Blacks, have long been committed to providing the best of science and medical research related to the causal patterns of disease among minorities. Now, in the coming year, you will find the journal’s format to be more accessible online and our peer review system will be greatly enhanced through sophisticated online systems – all in an effort to improve the way science is reported, delivered and used in the field.

With Volume 25, Issue #3, we will launch this online portal where readers can find articles of interest, authors can submit relevant research, and medical researchers can link to the journal’s articles and other resources. Meanwhile, we welcome comments and suggestions from you, our subscribers. We will also seek your help in peer reviewing, providing editorials and other efforts to ensure the scientific rigor of the journal. Please feel free to email me at editor@ethndis.org if you have comments or wish to offer assistance.

I look forward to offering you advanced products designed to support your work to improve health disparities among minority populations.

Please feel free to email me if you have comments or wish to offer assistance.
