Pharmacy Professor Appointed to American Diabetes Association Editorial Board

Vijay Kale, College of Pharmacy assistant professor of pharmaceutical sciences, was recently appointed to the American Diabetes Association (ADA) Clinical Diabetes Editorial Board.

“I am honored to serve on the Clinical Diabetes Editorial Board,” said Kale.

Clinical Diabetes is a premier primary care journal of the ADA. According to latest statistics more than 85% patients with diabetes are managed in primary care and so it is the journal’s objective to bring cutting edge clinical, patient centered diabetes research, case studies, and patient education material to primary care providers and all clinicians involved in the care of people with diabetes.

“I am thrilled to work with other board members, chief editors and associate editors of the journal who are some of the finest researchers, clinicians in the field of primary care and diabetes research,” said Kale. “It takes many months and years to conduct research and then publish it in journals, but now as a reviewer and an editorial board member, I will have the opportunity to review, understand and see some of the science that has not even been published. This is a great honor to myself professionally and personally, and also for Roseman University, as one of their faculty members is serving on an editorial board of one of ADA’s esteemed journals.”

As a member of the editorial board, Kale’s primary responsibilities include the following:

  • Review at least 8 manuscripts per year, suggest other reviewers, or encourage colleagues to review
  • Write and submit articles
  • Advocate the journal at meetings and conferences
  • Suggest new “departments,” features, or manuscript categories
  • Advise the editor and ADA on publishing trends and policy matters
