If, 34 years ago, when I finished my medical studies and decided to specialize in dermatology anyone had asked me "What is the Archives of Dermatology?" my answer would have been the same as any first-year residents of nowadays. "It is one of the oldest and most traditional dermatological journals in the world."
It is for this reason that, with the pleasure and honor of having been chosen as editor of the Spanish edition, born today with this first issue, I believe that no introduction is necessary. The Archives of Dermatology needs no introduction, as it is an example of continuity, prestige, quality, and tradition, and foremost in knowledge and research. Founded in 1882 under the name of The Journal of Cutaneous and Venereal Diseases, its name was changed to Archives of Dermatology and Syphilology in 1920, finally becoming the Archives of Dermatology in 1955.
