Indian Dermatology Online Journal (IDOJ) is a maiden open access electronic journal of Indian Association of Dermatologists, Venereologists and Leprologists (IADVL). It is a QUARTERLY annual open access journal indexed on PUBMED. It was originally introduced to showcase Dermatology in India but its scope includes showcasing interesting clinical material across the globe to the large dermatology community. We solicit editorials, review articles, case reports, correspondence, drug profiles, short opinions, musings, experiences, tricks and tips, We also have an online Quiz and a section called 'Through The Lens' where we urge the contributor to let the photograph and photomicrograph speak with just a short description.
All submissions are subject to peer review by the Editorial board and the referees in the appropriate speciality or areas of interest. This online journal welcomes articles from across the globe but specially encourages articles on pure clinical dermatology in India. We aim to encourage writing and publishing in the fond hope of sensitising dermatologists in India and the rest of the world to the importance of documentation. Keeping in mind the spirit of the journal and its raison de etre of encouraging sharing of Dermatology in India, it has been our policy to be less stringent in accepting articles coming from willing, enthusiastic authors whose contributions are indeed increasing, a partial fulfillment of our ongoing dream.
IDOJ is now included in PubMed. IDOJ, India's first Online journal of Dermatology is steadily growing in stature, content and readership. We invite you to showcase your experiences, work, observations and thoughts in this official Online Journal of the Indian Association of Dermatologists, Venereologists and Leprologists. (IADVL)
