A&R will begin 2014—its 57th year of publication—with a new name. As of the January issue, Arthritis & Rheumatism will become Arthritis & Rheumatology. The impetus for the name change is to replace the imprecise and obsolete word “rheumatism” with a term that clearly conveys the range of disorders and conditions addressed in the journal and by the discipline of rheumatology, and the molecular- and mechanism-based approaches being used to understand and treat these disorders. In surveys conducted in 2012, various possible new names for the journal were considered, including some that were radically different from the current one. In the end, it was decided to only replace “Rheumatism” with “Rheumatology,” so the name would reflect what we are about but wouldn't potentially create the misconception that this is a new, just-starting-out journal. The PubMed abbreviation will change very slightly, to “Arthritis Rheumatol.” In keeping with a priority expressed by most respondents, with the new name the journal will still be widely referred to as “A&R.”

If you are seeking a professional development opportunity that offers collegial expertise and peer interaction, join the American College of Rheumatology as rheumatologists from across the country gather in Snowmass, Colorado January 25–31, 2014 for 6 days of exceptional education content and opportunities to interact with peers and expert faculty, while enjoying some of the best skiing Colorado has to offer. Continuing a more-than–three decades–long tradition, the meeting will offer attendees a well-rounded view of the latest advances in the field of rheumatology, with sessions on clinical and basic science topics. Highlighting this year's Winter Rheumatology Symposium will be lectures on inflammatory bone disease, several lectures on recent advances in the diagnosis and treatment of rheumatic diseases including spondyloarthritis, osteoarthritis, and systemic lupus erythematosus, and the interactive Points-on-Joints session, providing a series of interesting, difficult, or puzzling rheumatologic cases followed by audience discussion. Sessions will be held in the morning and late afternoon to allow attendees to take advantage of the recreational and cultural activities of the Aspen-Snowmass Village. Be sure to register and book your hotel room early, because registration is limited and rooms go quickly. The early-bird registration deadline is December 13, 2013, and the advance registration deadline is January 10, 2014.
