Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America selects Wiley to publish Inflammatory Bowel DiseasesGlobal publisher John Wiley & Sons, Inc., announced today that it has been selected by the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) as the new publisher of the Foundation's official journal, Inflammatory Bowel Diseases, effective January 2007.
Inflammatory Bowel Diseases is the first and only peer-reviewed journal dedicated exclusively to inflammatory bowel diseases. Now in its tenth year, the journal provides articles of interest to professionals treating patients and conducting research in this expanding field. Each issue contains articles on clinical and basic science, as well as reviews of treatments and ground-breaking research.
"This is a wonderful partnership opportunity for Wiley," said Shawn Morton, Wiley Vice President and Publishing Director, Medicine. "We look forward to facilitating communication about the mechanisms and treatment of Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis through this premier publication in collaboration with CCFA."
Wiley will begin publishing the journal in 2007 and will continue to make it available in print and online as a benefit of CCFA Professional Membership, and through subscription to other individual and institutional customers. Inflammatory Bowel Diseases will be available online via Wiley InterScience (www.interscience.wiley.com), the company's online publishing platform.
"CCFA is extremely proud of this journal, which provides an important forum for the best and the brightest scientists and clinicians in our field to report on the advances that are being made," said Jonathan Braun, M.D., Ph.D., Professor, David Geffen School of Medicine, UCLA Medical Center, and Chair of CCFA's National Scientific Advisory Committee. "We're confident that our partnership with Wiley will allow us to build on the journal's success, and expand our outreach to the medical community."
