Global publisher John Wiley & Sons, Inc., today announced an agreement with the Mount Sinai School of Medicine whereby Wiley will assume publishing responsibilities for Mount Sinai Journal of Medicine.

Wiley will re-launch the journal as Mount Sinai Journal of Medicine: A Journal of Translational and Personalized Medicine featuring articles on the evolving nature of clinical care; its close linkage to bio-medical research; and resulting opportunities for enhanced patient outcomes. The new editorial focus reflects the growing importance of translational and personalized medicine.
"Wiley feels strongly that this journal with a long history has a bright future," said Shawn Morton, Vice President and Publishing Director, Medicine, John Wiley & Sons, Inc. "We see great value in disseminating translational research to support personalized medicine and look forward to working with Mount Sinai to position Mount Sinai Journal of Medicine as a leading forum for the publication of clinical research highly relevant to clinical practice."
Each issue of the journal will contain review articles invited and submitted from distinguished guest authors from U.S. and international institutions. In addition, the journal will accept unsolicited articles devoted to translational and personalized medicine that will be subject to peer review.
