With the growth in the impact factor and the resulting increase in selection pressure, increasingly many good papers do not find a place in the Journal of Hepatology. In May 2019 EASL launched a new open-access journal, JHEP Reports, with the ambition of establishing a top-10 journal in the field of gastroenterology and hepatology. In June 2023, Clarivate Analytics released the 2023 update of its Journal Citation Reports, including the impact factor of 8.3 for JHEP Reports. This achievement underscores the journal’s strength and maturity in the field, as it surpasses that of its main competitors.
