Elsevier is New Publisher of ISSM Journals

The ISSM is pleased to announce that effective this month, Elsevier will publish three of the ISSM's journals: The Journal of Sexual Medicine, Sexual Medicine Reviews, and Sexual Medicine.

Founded in 1880, Elsevier has grown to an international multimedia company with over 20,000 products for science and healthcare professionals. The company is currently headquartered in Amsterdam. 

In a press release last year, John P. Mulhall, Editor-in-Chief of The Journal of Sexual Medicine, said, "The JSM editorial team is delighted to work with Elsevier. As a giant in scientific and medical publishing with a proven track record in urology and reproductive health, we are very pleased to add our sexual medicine content to Elsevier’s journal program and to its electronic platforms to ensure the highest level of readability and interactivity for our readers.  I personally look forward to ensuring that JSM brings research of the highest relevance, rigor, and reproducibility to our readership.”

“We are excited about this opportunity to enhance our health sciences journal portfolio with the inclusion of these three prestigious journals in the field of sexual medicine. We look forward to working together with the ISSM and the editorial teams to ensure continued growth and enhance global exposure of the journals”, said Anne Kitson, Executive Vice President, Health and Medical Science Journals at Elsevier.

Medical Societies Update Vulvar Pain Terminology and Classification

The ISSM has recently adopted updated evidence-based terminology and classification for persistent vulvar pain. 

The terminology was developed and accepted by The International Society for the Study of Women's Sexual Health (ISSWSH), the International Society for the Study of Vulvovaginal Disorders (ISSVD), and the International Pelvic Pain Society (IPPS) last summer.

Previous terminology had been accepted by the ISSVD in 2003. The revision takes new research, treatments, and descriptors into account and is meant to be used across disciplines.
