As announced in the latest update from BioMed Central, dated 17 January 2003, a new open-access journal, Health and Quality of Life Outcomes has been launched. The Editorial Board has a strong representation from Italy, and also has substantial international representation. For example, it includes the names of several individuals who have made well-known contributions to the field, including Barrie Cassileth (USA), David Cella (USA), Lesley Fallowfield (UK), David Gustafson (USA), Robert Kaplan (USA) and others. This new journal will be in direct competition with Quality of Life Research, a toll-access journal of Kluwer Academic Publishers.
