Abstracts in Perspective™ is a 12- to 24-page review of recent developments within a therapeutic class, e.g. rheumatology, that is primarily derived from abstracts presented at a sanctioned medical meeting, e.g. European Congress of Rheumatology (EULAR), and includes a compendium of original abstracts from the conference along with expert commentary based on interviews with the investigators. A guest editor provides an introductory perspective editorial on the topic. Each section includes a question-and-answer component with the authors of the various abstracts.
