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. After a careful analysis, EASL decided to launch a new open-access journal, JHEP Reports, with the ambition of establishing a top-10 journal in the field of gastroenterology and hepatology, with an impact factor >7.
Let’s improve together the quality of research articles from JHEP Reports. Send your articles to JHEP Reports. EASL members enjoy 50% discount off the JHEP Reports open-access publication fees.
JHEP Reports will publish original papers, reviews, and letters to the Editor concerned with basic, translational, and clinical research in the field of hepatology. The aim is to create an innovative journal that publishes content covering global issues in hepatology, with a specific focus on clinical trials, novel diagnostics, precision medicine and therapeutics, cellular and molecular research, metabolism, cancer, microbiome, systems biology, epidemiology, and biotechnology advances and devices.
- Increase EASL’s footprint in clinical, translational, and basic research in hepatology
- Provide a home to authors who want to publish quickly and in a respected journal
- Give a home to the many good papers that are rejected from the Journal of Hepatology
- Offer a Gold Open Access possibility to (European) hepatologists
