Last featured in the 03-29-2000 issue of the Scout Report, the Journal of Investigative Dermatology continues to be one of the most impactful sources of peer-reviewed basic, translational, and clinical dermatological research. While some articles continue to operate on the subscription model, the journal is supportive of open access research. Its efforts include an open archive and many freely available articles in each issue.
Clinicians, medical students, and public health researchers interested in dermatology, skin conditions, and scientific discovery will want to check out the Journal of Investigative Dermatology (JID), a publisher of "high impact reports describing original research related to all aspects of cutaneous biology and skin disease." Published through Elsevier, in partnership with the Society for Investigative Dermatology (SID) and the European Society for Dermatological Research (ESDR), the journal's editorial board includes clinicians and researchers from around the U.S. and across the globe. Some of the most read articles from recent issues have covered topics such as COVID-19 ("From Your Nose to Your Toes: A Review of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 Pandemic-Associated Pernio") and cystic fibrosis ("Cystic Fibrosis Transport Regulator and its mRNA are Expressed in Human Epidermis"). Interested readers can follow the journal on Twitter (@JIDJournals) for updates.
