Journal of Neuromuscular Diseases Celebrates 10-Year Anniversary with Commemorative Editorial
The January 2024 edition of the Journal of Neuromuscular Diseases (JND) marked the journal’s 10-year anniversary! This is a special milestone for the publication that serves the international community as a publication for neuromuscular translational research, aiming to facilitate progress in understanding the molecular genetics/correlates, pathogenesis, pharmacology, diagnosis and treatment of acquired and genetic neuromuscular disease.
In recognition of this occasion, Co-Editors-in-Chief of the JND Dr. Hanns Lochmüller and Dr. Carsten Bonnëmann have published the editorial “The First Decade of Journal of Neuromuscular Diseases: Supporting and Advancing the Rapidly Evolving Field of Translational Research”, a review of the evolution of the JND from conception to current day.
Highlights from the editorial include:
- Remarks on the initial need for the journal
- Benchmarks of the journal’s impact and growth
- A content summary of JND publications by disease type, demographics, and research methodologies
- Discussion on recent trends, inspiration, and hope for the future of translational neuromuscular research
The entire team at the JND are proud to have been part of the past decade of exciting advancements in preclinical and clinical translational neuromuscular research, and look forward to another decade of growing the journal and serving the neuromuscular community.
