BMJ and the Lupus Foundation of America (LFA) have announced that they will publish the first open-access journal dedicated to the disease lupus. In lupus, the body’s immune system is out of balance, causing inflammation and tissue damage to any organ system in the body, including the skin, joints, heart and kidneys.

Lupus Science & Medicine promises to offer scientists and clinicians a ‘unique focal point for new developments in the understanding and treatment of this complex and unpredictable autoimmune disease, the causes of which are still not clear’.

The journal is owned by the Lupus Foundation of America, and will be published by BMJ as a peer reviewed open access online title, with submissions on basic, clinical, translational, and epidemiological studies on all aspects of lupus and related diseases.
