Publications & Communications

The American College of Rheumatology (ACR) publishes a variety of rheumatology-related materials - from the latest news in arthritis research and clinical practice, to advocacy and health policy. The ACR’s publications reflect the diversity of clinical and topical issues facing today’s rheumatology workforce.


The American College of Rheumatology publishes Arthritis & Rheumatology and Arthritis Care & Research, which focus on all aspects of rheumatic disease. These international, peer-reviewed journals are committed to promoting the highest standards of scientific information and education. Access to all content is free to members. Other individuals can access abstracts, the full text of articles published more than one year ago, select open-access articles published recently, and the always open-access ACR Open Rheumatology.
