Elsevier welcomes new Editor for The Journal of Urology


Elsevier, world leading publisher of scientific, technical and medical information, welcomes William D. Steers, M.D., F.A.C.S. as Editor of The Journal of Urology®, the official journal of the American Urological Association (AUA), and the most widely read and cited journal in the field. Dr. Steers replaces former Editor Martin I. Resnick, M.D., who died earlier this year. Dr. Steers was appointed by the AUA and assumed editorship of The Journal on November 1, 2007.

“It is indeed a great honor to be named Editor of one of the world’s leading medical and scientific journals,” states Dr. Steers. “I eagerly look forward to working with the AUA and Elsevier to build upon the quality instilled by my predecessors. My vision, with the help of my outstanding editorial board and staff, is to position The Journal to meet the challenges posed by today’s competitive publishing environment and the array of platforms by which readers obtain the latest, up-to-date medical information.”

“Elsevier’s publishing partnership with the AUA has provided us the opportunity to work closely with the key leaders in the urology community,” comments Glen Campbell, Senior Vice President of the U.S. Health Sciences Journals Division at Elsevier. “Going forward, we look forward to working with Dr. Steers and building on the legacy of his predecessors, while we continue to develop innovative strategies for disseminating research and educational information in this increasingly important specialty.”

Dr. Steers is the Hovey Dabney Professor of Urology and chair of the Department of Urology at the University of Virginia Health System in Charlottesville, and a Trustee on the American Board of Urology. Prior to assuming the editorship of The Journal, he served as one of The Journal’s associate editors.
