“I feel honored to serve as the newly appointed Editor-in-Chief of Exploration of Musculoskeletal Diseases (EMD). EMD will give investigators, scientists, and clinicians the opportunity to publish and share outstanding knowledge from basic to clinical science including topics on pharmacology, imaging, surgery, physical therapy, and outcomes related to the treatment of musculoskeletal diseases. With the increasing knowledge on pathophysiology and therapeutic targets for chronic inflammatory diseases, new medications yet available and also those upcoming, as well as the increasing outbreak of health outcomes in health services management and clinical practice will surely change the landscape of musculoskeletal diseases in a near future. With the infrastructures and support of Open Exploration Publishing services, the new EMD journal seeks to become a reference in this new landscape for musculoskeletal diseases.”
