I am happy to announce our flagship journal, The Journal of Racial and Ethnic Health Disparities, will move from quarterly publication to bimonthly, starting in 2017. Since its official launch in July 2013, we have received an impressive number of high quality submissions from scholars all over the world. We have published articles in all areas of racial and ethnic health disparities. Importantly, our journal was accepted for indexing by PubMed/Medline in October 2015.
The Journal of Racial and Ethnic Health Disparities will continue to update the community on new research findings, commentaries, insights, and discussions that are relevant to the health disparities. I congratulate all our associates: editors, editorial board members, reviewers, and editorial staff for their outstanding work in achieving this milestone.
