The following Article Collection/ Thematic Series is currently open for submissions:

Atopic Dermatitis and Other Atopic Comorbidities

Dove Medical Press is pleased to invite you to submit your research to the upcoming Article Collection “Atopic Dermatitis and Other Atopic Comorbidities” in the Journal of Asthma and Allergy.

Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a chronic inflammatory cutaneous disorder. Currently, AD has been found to be associated with substantial patient burden and numerous atopic comorbidities, including asthma, allergic rhinitis, food allergy, and eosinophilic esophagitis, as well as nonatopic comorbidities, including allergic contact dermatitis, anxiety, depression, suicidality, infections, and cardiovascular disease. All these comorbidities led to the recognition of AD as a systemic disease. Of note, the relationship between AD and comorbidities is likely bidirectional and multifactorial, as well as some comorbidities may be secondary to the effects of the burden of chronic AD.

This Article Collection aims to explore the association between atopic dermatitis and other atopic comorbidities, shedding light on the shared pathophysiological mechanisms and the implications for clinical management.

This Article Collection aims to bring together original research articles, review articles, and commentaries exploring the pathogenesis of atopic diseases, also considering primary immune defects presenting as AD, the role of environmental factors, the impact of environmental allergies and infections, novel diagnostic approaches (including biomarkers), and emerging therapeutic approaches (including biologic treatments and JAK inhibitors). Articles regarding all the atopic diseases (asthma, food allergy, allergic rhinitis, eosinophilic esophagitis, and atopic dermatitis) are welcome.

Potential topics include the following aspects:
- Epidemiology and burden of atopic comorbidities
- Pathophysiological mechanisms
- The role of environmental allergies in atopic diseases
- Biomarkers in atopic diseases
- Asthma and allergic rhinitis in atopic dermatitis
- Atopic dermatitis and food allergies
- Atopic dermatitis and mental health
- Novel therapeutic approaches
- The use of biologics in atopic diseases
- Clinical management and guidelines

All manuscripts submitted to this Article Collection will undergo desk assessment and peer-review as part of our standard editorial process. Guest Advisors for this collection will not be involved in peer-reviewing manuscripts unless they are an existing member of the Editorial Board. Please review the journal Aims and Scope and author submission instructions prior to submitting a manuscript.

The deadline for submissions is 31 December 2024.

  • It is an open access journal which means that your paper is available to anyone in the world to download for free directly from the Dove website.
  • Although the Journal of Asthma and Allergy receives many papers, unlike most traditional journals, your paper will not be rejected due to lack of space. We are an electronic journal and there are no limits on the number or size of the papers we can publish.
  • The time from submission to a decision being made on a paper can, in many journals, take some months and this is very frustrating for authors.  The Journal of Asthma and Allergy has a quicker turnaround time than this. Generally peer review is complete within 3-4 weeks and the editor’s decision within 2-14 days of this. It is therefore very rare to have to wait more than 6 weeks for first editorial decision.
  • Many authors have found that our peer reviewer’s comments substantially add to their final papers.

To recover our editorial and production costs and continue to provide our content at no cost to readers we charge authors or their institution an article publishing charge.
