[Comment] Rheumatology—a call for papers

Rheumatoid and autoimmune diseases are a heterogeneous group of disorders, many of which are of unknown aetiology and have heterogeneous clinical presentation. Often difficult to diagnose and to treat, these conditions are an under-appreciated group of non-communicable diseases that, according to latest Global Burden of Disease estimates,1 contribute as much as 20% of years lived with disability, worldwide. Research into the treatment, epidemiology, and public health and education interventions that might help to combat this diverse group of diseases is an urgent, unmet need.
