Focus, Scope and Objectives
Beyond Rheumatology is an international, open access, peer-reviewed journal committed to publishing new discoveries on diagnostic, prognostic, clinical and therapeutic topics about rheumatism and allied conditions. Beyond Rheumatology aims to build a platform for high-quality scientific exchange between the different specialists largely focused on the real life of patient’s care. The Journal welcomes research works on rheumatic diseases and allied conditions, reporting perspectives and highlighting new directions also addressed to physicians other than rheumatologists for the management of rheumatology diseases and their comorbidities.
Indeed, rheumatology is a multidisciplinary branch of medicine concerned with the study of a wide range of disorders that affect joints, muscles, bones, connective tissues, skin, eyes and systemic inflammatory conditions and that can have a significant impact on healthcare systems, being one of the most common causes of disability and work-related absences. In addition, patients with rheumatologic diseases have been found to be at increased risk of developing a variety of comorbid conditions like malignancies, cardiovascular disease, infections, kidney, lung and gastrointestinal diseases, and depression.
Therefore, Beyond Rheumatology is addressed to a wide array of physicians, rheumatologists, immunologists, orthopedics, endocrinologists, rehabilitation doctor, dermatologist, radiologists, and other clinical specialists working directly for the management of rheumatology diseases and their comorbidities.
