The Journal of Rare Disorders is the first journal devoted to rare disorders in the USA. The aim of this new journal is to provide a forum for scientific discourse that will strive to be of great service for physicians, allied health professionals, patient advocates and researchers involved in developing orphan therapies.

The open access, online format will provide full access to all content without barriers to ensure the widest possible dissemination of important research findings as well as open-label studies, regulatory issues, review articles, case reports and editorials on all aspects of diagnosis and treatment of rare disorders.

We hope this publication will be an additional tool to help physicians in their continuing efforts to tackle difficult-to-diagnose diseases.
