About the book

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is one of the most common chronic, inflammatory immune mediated multisystem diseases in rheumatology. RA is a complex hetero¬geneous multifaceted disease with variable clinical presentation and comorbidities. The disease burden originates primarily from ongoing joint inflammation in the absence of tight control leading to progressive joint damage and disability.

The latest decades have witnessed a revolutionary era that aimed to provide a better understanding of the disease, the underlying immune-pathogenic mechanisms and therapeutic targets for stringent control. The book “Rheumatoid Arthritis” aims to addresses rheumatoid arthritis related topics, from basic to advanced including updates on the underlying immunopathogenic mechanisms, update on diagnostic advances, measures of assessment for disease activity, latest recommendations for therapy and future targets to achieve tight disease control and minimize or abort disease related comorbidities seeking latest evidences.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mrs. Ana Golec

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
