Arthritis Care & Research is soliciting manuscripts for a themed issue addressing muscle and bone issues and outcomes in the rheumatic diseases. Manuscripts covering a broad range of topics related to the major theme are invited, for example: risk factors for the onset of sarcopenia or bone loss among persons with rheumatic conditions; the epidemiology and consequences of deconditioning or muscle loss in rheumatic diseases (osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, osteoporosis, and others); inflammation and muscle; muscle fat infiltration and sarcopenia; muscle power and mobility limitations; and exercise interventions and sarcopenia. Submissions are encouraged from a range of disciplines relevant to muscle and bone issues and outcomes in rheumatic diseases, and we will entertain both original research articles and review articles.
The issue will include regular submissions as well, but a certain number of pages will be reserved for manuscripts accepted in response to this solicitation. All manuscripts will be peer-reviewed.
