A Note from Mary Ann

Mary Ann Liebert

Isn't this fun? In June, our wonderful staff planned a terrific party for our international sales representatives and surprised me with some very unexpected guests! Our corporate culture is so special—I encourage you to visit if you are in the New York area.

News about important new publications, such as Health Equity, are in this issue of Liebert Link, as well as up-to-date information about new editors of well-established journals.

On my soapbox, I want to remind you about the importance of adding Violence and Gender to your collection. It is critical to understand the impact of gender on the growing epidemic of violence, which is a threat to public health! A subscription should be an imperative. Access to Election Law Journal is also imperative for every political science professor and students, now more than ever before.

We’re so proud of these publications. There is a Mary Ann Liebert at Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., and that makes a difference… I hope you agree!

Stay cool,
Mary Ann
Founder, President, and CEO

Health Equity, New Peer-Reviewed Open Access Journal Launching
Fall 2016

Health Equity

We are pleased to announce the launch of Health Equity, a new peer-reviewed open access journal that will address the urgent need for authoritative information about health disparities and health equity among vulnerable populations. Content will range from translational research to prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and management of disease and illness toward the goal of optimal outcomes and ultimately health equity for all.  Health Equity is being launched with a grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation to ensure that it is accessible as widely as possible and to provide a framework for achieving health equity for children, families, and communities by reducing and ultimately eliminating disparities in health and its social, economic, and environmental determinants.

This Issue's Featured Journal: Violence and Gender

Violence and Gender

A critical resource for all institutions, Violence and Gender is the first and only peer-reviewed journal focusing on the understanding, prediction, and prevention of acts of violence. The Journal is the international forum for the critical examination of biological, genetic, behavioral, psychological, racial, ethnic, and cultural factors as they relate to the gender of perpetrators of violence. Through peer-reviewed research, roundtable discussions, case studies, and other original content, Violence and Gender explores the difficult issues that are vital to threat assessment and prevention of the epidemic of violence.

The Journal is under the editorial leadership of Mary Ellen O'Toole, PhD, Director, Forensic Science Program, George Mason University and Senior FBI Profiler/Criminal Investigative Analyst (ret.) . “I spent my career studying the criminal violent mind,” says Dr. O’Toole, “and now gratuitous violence is at an all-time high. This violence is well-planned, lethal, and extremely callous. The offenders are nearly always male. Does gender really make a difference in the commission of violent crime? Our journal takes on this urgent question.”

Contact us to learn more about adding Violence and Gender to your collection.
