Speaking of the journal acquisition, Karen Phillips, SAGE Publishing’s Editorial Director commented:

“The research published in Women’s Health provides the medical community with an important outlet for key discussions on the engagement with and management of the field of women’s health. SAGE has, and continues to develop, a strong programme of journals representing the leading researchers, practitioners and societies in medicine. Taking on Women’s Health is an acknowledgement of the strength of partnerships we have built with the community and we look forward to supporting the journal and the field of research further.”

Speaking on behalf of Future Medicine, Managing Director, Phil Garner further remarked:

“I am very pleased that SAGE Publishing will be taking over the publication of Women’s Health. Having fast established a leading portfolio of medical journals, SAGE has the expertise, breadth of knowledge and global scale to be able to support the continued development of this key title. SAGE’s approach to publishing is one that balanced global scale with the importance of personal relationships and I very much look forward to watching the development of the title with its new publishing partners.”

Future Medicine an imprint of Future Science Group, addresses information needs in clinical and translational medicine and the biosciences. Taking a concise and forward-looking perspective of the developments in modern healthcare, our journals and books span the scientific, clinical, economic and policy issues that confront us today.

Women’s Health is organized around restrictive social myths about women: women at the mercy of their hormones; the myth of the maternal instinct; the assumption that it is `natural' for women to carry out the majority of unpaid domestic labour and family care; and women as stereotypes conforming to images of youth, beauty and sexual availability to men. Drawing on research from a wide range of countries, non-western perspectives are included wherever possible. Each chapter includes a review of the psychological literature and relates it to feminist perspectives.
