Access to the Journal of Investigative Dermatology is a benefit for ESDR members.

The ESDR goes green

The ESDR is taking steps to improve its ecological footprint. In 2022, you will have access to the electronic version of the JID.  This small step will minimize our ecological footprint by avoiding the use of paper and shipping.

Thank you for supporting us in this green initiative.
