​ITCH, the official journal of the International Forum for the Study of Itch (IFSI), publishes original scientific papers that contribute to our understanding of the basic mechanisms and clinical aspects of itch (pruritus). The journal's scope will range from the molecular, genomic, proteomic and systems levels, to clinical diagnosis, treatment, and outcomes research. Articles on itch-related subjects from the disciplines of dermatology, internal medicine, neurology, neuroscience, allergy and immunology, psychology, pharmacology, palliative medicine and epidemiology will be considered for publication. Research articles may appear as full reports or brief communications. ITCH also publishes systematic reviews, commentaries, editorials, case reports and letters to the Editor.
