We are delighted to announce that Asthma Research and Practice has launched a new allergy section that is now open to submissions! The section is edited by Dr Olympia Tsilochristou MD PhD, Consultant Allergist and considers all aspects of allergy with a particular focus on links between asthma and allergic rhinitis, drug hypersensitivity reactions, and food allergy as well as on allergen immunotherapy and biologicals for asthma/allergic rhinitis. If you would like more information on the section’s aims and scopes or on the suitability of your manuscript for the journal, please do reach out using the Contact button at the bottom of the page.
New Allergy Section
Featured article: Changes in quantifiable breathing pattern components predict asthma control: an observational cross-sectional study
Breathing pattern disorders are frequently reported in uncontrolled asthma. At present, this is primarily assessed by questionnaires, which are subjective. Objective measures of breathing pattern components may provide additional useful information about asthma control. This study examined whether respiratory timing parameters and thoracoabdominal (TA) motion measures could predict and classify levels of asthma control.
COVID-19 and impact on peer review
As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
Aims and scope
Asthma Research and Practice publishes cutting edge basic, clinical and translational research in addition to hot topic reviews and debate articles relevant to asthma and related disorders (such as rhinitis, COPD overlapping syndrome, sinusitis). The journal has a specialized section which focusses on pediatric asthma research.
Asthma Research and Practice aims to serve as an international platform for the dissemination of research of interest to pulmonologists, allergologists, primary care physicians and family doctors, ENTs and other health care providers interested in asthma, its mechanisms and comorbidities.
