The increasing number of physicians who focus on women's health is creating a growing need for information channels in this discipline. Women's health issues cannot be neatly packaged into existing specialty journals, hence the need for a new publication.
Clinical Journal of Women's Health responds to this need by taking an interdisciplinary approach to issues affecting women's health across the lifespan. In the introductory editorial, Dr Hendrix writes that the journal "is dedicated to publishing [pertinent] research findings for the practicing physician and . . . draw[ing] on the expertise of our editorial board to assist in interpreting how these results can be used in clinical practice." To accomplish the second goal, the impressive editorial board has doubled during the journal's first year and now includes many women, who should bring to bear useful perspectives in managing women's health problems.
