It follows from the above definition that a review journal covering this area of Biomedicine must operate in a “multidisciplinary” fashion. The rapidly accumulating and fragmented information available today will be collected, organized and interpreted; the elements, compounds, cells and tissues will be fitted into living organisms and our knowledge of the biology of such higher organisms will be enhanced. The rules of physiological interactions during homeostasis must be understood and also the regulatory interactions in diseases must be followed, which operate during pathophysiological conditions (allostasis).
One might raise the objection that Advances in Neuroimmune Biology aspire for too much and eventually will catch very little. This is why the editors have to examine carefully each topic and project. Yes, this science is multi-disciplinary, but they restrict themselves to study integrative mechanisms/pathways exclusively. If a topic/project does not deal with the subject area in an integrative manner, it will not be considered for publication. A panel of outstanding scientists have given their support to this proposal and agreed to serve on the Editorial Board. The editors will review papers, will be expected to contribute articles, plan actively and edit certain issues, and will also be active in soliciting new articles from fellow scientists.
The primary audience will be scientists working in physiology, endocrinology, immunology, pathology, medicine and in similar areas of veterinary medicine and of biology. Zoologists should also be interested as lower animals also have integrative coordinating mechanisms to organize their biology.
The secondary audience would come from doctors of medicine and veterinary medicine, practicing biologists, etc. At a certain level parents, even animal breeders, and the general public should also be interested. Amongst the problems this journal will present are the stress response and its biological significance. These questions have fundamental importance to modern society and to proper health care. Clearly, the systematic presentation of Neuroimmune Biology is very much in need in modern societies.
