The Archives began publication in October 1882 as the Journal of Cutaneous and Venereal Diseases. In 1887 its name changed to the Journal of Cutaneous and Genito-Urinary Diseases, and in 1903 to the Journal of Cutaneous Diseases Including Syphilis. When the American Medical Association became responsible for its publication in 1920, it was retitled the Archives of Dermatology and Syphilology. In 1955 the journal's name was shortened to its current one. During its 107 years of uninterrupted publication, the journal has published thousands of articles, of which some of the most notable were reprinted in the October 1982 Centennial issue. It is our hope that the scrutiny afforded the manuscripts submitted to this journal over the past 1287 months have allowed us to publish manuscripts of sufficiently high quality that most have been useful to the many generations of dermatologists who constitute our readership.
