Elsevier , a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical
information products and services, is pleased to announce the launch of Wound
Medicine  -  The International Wound Journal for Clinical and Health
Economics Research and Applications .

Published in print and online four times a year Wound Medicine is devoted to
the clinical, scientific and health economics aspects in the prevention,
management and reimbursement in wound care. The journal publishes original
research papers and review articles. In addition, the journal will feature
standards and guidelines, commentaries, health economic analyses and selected
conference papers that meet the information need of wound care specialists and
service providers .

Thomas Wild and Thomas Eberlein, both from the Wound Academy in Hamburg and
University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf, founded the journal. Together
with a prestigious international editorial team they aim to cover themes
central to the journal such as: tissue repair and wound healing, diabetic
foot syndrome, clinical trials and outcomes, health care and economics and
service delivery. Their vision for Wound Medicine is to advance the
translation of science into clinical practice and application, to improve
outcomes and the patient experience.

"We are convinced that Wound Medicine will facilitate the development of
standards and enhance guidelines benefitting health care professionals in and
beyond Europe by putting emphasis on health improvement and economic
benefits," said Thomas Wild, "The journal has been launched to provide a home
for translational wound research, and we welcome submissions from all
affiliated clinical fields." 

"We are excited about the launch of Wound Medicine which will cover the
rapidly developing area of wound care, a subject of ever increasing
importance," added Helen Habernickel, Publishing Editor at Elsevier. "Our
aging and diabetes prone population is at an increased risk of developing
chronic wounds while normal wound healing decreases with age. This journal
will provide a publication platform for the advances made in wound research."
