Journal of Hereditary Diseases

Aims and Scope


Journal of Hereditary Diseases (JHD) is an open access journal that focuses on scientific advancement in the field of hereditary diseases. It provides a platform for researchers, clinicians and academicians from all over the world to disseminate their research work on the genetic and environmental aspects of heritable medical disorders. This journal seeks to publish research reports, reviews, editorials, commentaries, and case studies on a broad range of topics including pathogenesis, clinical aspects, diagnosis and treatment of hereditary diseases. The editor-in-chief and the editorial board of this journal are committed to publishing high quality original research and review articles that focus on the latest developments in the field of hereditary diseases.

The aim of this journal is to provide an efficient platform for knowledge exchange and to foster discussion and collaboration on issues related to genetic and environmental causes, diagnosis and prognosis, and clinical management of heritable diseases. The research published in this journal covers a wide range of topics related to genetic and environmental etiologies of rare and common diseases, as well as emerging technologies, treatments and therapies for patients affected by hereditary diseases.

JHD readers can explore a broad range of topics, including gene editing, epigenetic regulation and therapeutic strategies, clinical management of inherited diseases, epidemiology, and prevention, public health practices, and policy, and ethical, legal, and social implications. JHD is dedicated to advancing understanding of hereditary disease and inspiring action to improve care and prevention. Its content is suitable for researchers, clinicians, educators, and general readers who are interested in all aspects of inherited diseases.

The journal encourages submissions from researchers in all areas of hereditary disease research, including basic science, clinical medicine, public health and policy.
