De Gruyter has launched an open-access medical journal that it says is launched in response to reawakened interest in medical diagnosis. The journal, Diagnosis, publishes peer-reviewed, English-language articles. Subjects include factors that promote diagnostic quality and safety and known and unknown causes of diagnostic error.

The journal will also look at diagnostic innovations; how culture and removing blame promote awareness of diagnostic errors; training and education related to clinical reasoning and diagnostic skills; advances in laboratory testing and imaging that improve diagnostic capability; and local, national, and international initiatives to reduce diagnostic error.

'We're extremely pleased to have a new journal in our catalogue that addresses an issue at the centre of heated discussion worldwide,' said Till Meinert, senior editorial director of medicine & life sciences at De Gruyter.
