Dermanities (an online journal) was launched in December of 2002 by Benjamin Barankin, M.D. and David J. Elpern, M.D. based on the lack of coverage of the humanities and patient care in the dermatology literature. While there are countless dermatology journals globally, none consistently address this important area. Through essays, humor, poetry, photography and the shared collective wisdom of the global community, Dermanities’ aim was to enrich the dermatological and medical community. In 2012, we transferred Dermanities to The Online Journal of Community and Patient-Centered Dermatology (OJCPCD).
We encourage you to submit ideas, essays, poems, & humor, photos, as well as evidence-based papers relating to the humanities and the interaction with medical practice in general and dermatology in particular to OJCPCD.
