New Publication


Recommended Posts

  • Root Admin

The RRDi is sponsoring a new publication, RRDi Report, Volume 1, No. 1, which will be released in 2008. We are asking for the MAC members to volunteer to write an article on rosacea and conribute for this project as a volunteer. We will publish this as a print on demand book and the profit for the sale of this book will be used to put in the general fund to use for rosacea research. If you would like to volunteer for this project let me know in this topic whether you could help in either of these two ways:

(1) Work on the editorial staff (let me know your skills)

(2) Write an article for this publication

So far I have received a few replies from the MAC members:

I would be very interested to provide a chapter on the place of camouflage makeup. I have over 20 years experience in the area, and run a camouflage clinic at our University Hospital. I know this is of great value to our rosacea patients.

Hello Brady,

My student, Daphne Su, and I would be interested in writing a chapter on psychological aspects of rosacea for the book.

Best wishes,

Peter Drummond

Dear Mr. Barrows,

Dr. Akilov and myself would be interested in writing a chapter in the future

book on the role of Demodex mites in Rosacea and other dermatoses. However,

we would need 3-4 months to deliver the manuscript.

Best Regards

Submitted an article:



The following MAC members are too busy and replied that they could not contribute an article:

Marianne Boes, PhD

Robert T. Brodell, MD

Sandra Creamers, MD

Robert Latkany, MD

Michelle Pelle, MD

Gerd Plewig, MD


We have yet to hear from 15 MAC members, so based on the replies so far, it will be a long project before we are finished. But I am confident that the first publication the RRDi sponsors will be important and increase respect for this non profit organization of volunteers and increase membership. Let me know if you want to be a part of this project?

Thanks for volunteering. We could use you on the editorial staff. I am changing your membership to REPORT STAFF and you will have access to the private area where all volunteers on the staff will be able to see the project come together. I anticipate this project to be completed by early 2008, hopefully.

You will see the private area for this project at the bottom of the forum.


If I can help by writing a short introduction to give an overview of the submitted articles, that would be great. I am also happy to proofread where needed.


(molecular biologist, plenty of writing experience)

Thanks, you are now appointed on the editorial staff.


I am a professional editor and indexer. I would be happy to proofread the publication and, if there is need, create an index for it.
