Being one of the top journals in the fields of allergy and clinical immunology and the major publishing organ of EAACI, it is one of the major aims of this collaboration to further increase the visibility of research published in Allergy. The main tools to achieve this aim include the distribution of the content published in Allergy via the EAACI and the JM-dedicated communication channels.
Starting April 2016, articles recently published in Allergy are announced and posted on EAACI Twitter (@EAACI_HQ) and Facebook channels each Sunday and Wednesday tagged with the hasthag #Allergy_Journal. Starting from October 2016 onwards, the JM-Allergy collaboration team monthly selects the paper that is most relevant to fellows in training for its educational content. The JM must-read articles are highlighted with the EAACI_JM logo in both the printed and the online version of the journal.
Another important and – as we hope – informative initiative is the conduction of webcasted interviews with main authors of Allergy-published articles. These interviews are intended to represent an opportunity for the interested clinician or researcher to learn about the personal view of the author on the respective research topic and to virtually “meet the author”. Since November 2015, 8 video interviews with renowned experts in the field have been performed by EAACI JMs and published on the EAACI webpage and YouTube channel.
