Wiley to assume publication of Mount Sinai Journal of Medicine

Redesigned and refocused journal will emphasize translational and personalized medicine

Global publisher John Wiley & Sons, Inc., today announced an agreement with the Mount Sinai School of Medicine whereby Wiley will assume publishing responsibilities for Mount Sinai Journal of Medicine. Wiley will re-launch the journal in January 2007 with a completely new design and editorial focus.

Published continuously since 1934 by The Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, Mount Sinai Journal of Medicine is issued six times a year and features clinical articles from all medical disciplines. Wiley will re-launch the journal as Mount Sinai Journal of Medicine: A Journal of Translational and Personalized Medicine featuring articles on the evolving nature of clinical care; its close linkage to bio-medical research; and resulting opportunities for enhanced patient outcomes. The new editorial focus reflects the growing importance of translational and personalized medicine.

"Wiley feels strongly that this journal with a long history has a bright future," said Shawn Morton, Vice President and Publishing Director, Medicine, John Wiley & Sons, Inc. "We see great value in disseminating translational research to support personalized medicine and look forward to working with Mount Sinai to position Mount Sinai Journal of Medicine as a leading forum for the publication of clinical research highly relevant to clinical practice."

Each issue of the journal will contain review articles – invited and submitted – from distinguished guest authors from U.S. and international institutions. In addition, the journal will accept unsolicited articles devoted to translational and personalized medicine that will be subject to peer review.

"We are excited at the opportunity to collaborate with Wiley and convert Mount Sinai Journal of Medicine from its current editorial format to one focused on personalized and translational medicine," said C. Warren Olanow, M.D., Professor and Chairman of Neurology at Mount Sinai School of Medicine and Editor-in-Chief. "We look forward to bridging with a new format, focus and publisher the gap between scientific discovery and clinical application for physicians, investigators and translational researchers."

Wiley will publish Mount Sinai Journal of Medicine: A Journal of Translational and Personalized Medicine in print and online via Wiley InterScience (www.interscience.wiley.com), Wiley's online publishing platform.
