Hoboken, N.J., April 23, 2007 -- The American Association of Anatomists (AAA) and global publisher John Wiley & Sons, Inc. announces today a collaborative agreement to launch Anatomical Sciences Education, a new international journal covering the most exciting developments in education in the anatomical sciences. The journal will debut in early 2008 and will publish six times per year in print and online via Wiley InterScience (www.interscience.wiley.com), Wileys online publishing platform.
The mission of the journal is to disseminate new ideas, innovations, and research in a way that emphasizes the quality, depth, and scope of activities and developments in the field of anatomy education.
Scholarly work related to education in the anatomical sciences tends to be published either in traditional anatomy journals or in numerous medical specialty journals that are not read by teaching faculty in the anatomical sciences; hence, the impact of new developments in this field is somewhat diluted, said Co-Editor, Wojciech Pawlina, M.D. We hope Anatomical Sciences Education will provide a home for all manuscripts dealing with issues related to anatomical sciences education, said Co-Editor, Richard L. Drake, Ph.D.
Providing an international forum for the exchange of ideas, the scope of this journal will encompass all levels of anatomical education, including undergraduate, allied health, medicalboth allopathic and osteopathic, dental, graduate and post-graduate, and will cover all related disciplines, such as gross anatomy, embryology, histology, and neuroscience.
We are pleased to have this opportunity to extend our partnership with the AAA further while contributing to the medical and educational community. Publication of Anatomical Sciences Education enables us to provide practical must-have information to educators, while expanding our portfolio of journals in the field of education
