AGA introduces new journal: Cellular and Molecular Gastroenterology and Hepatology

November 03, 2014

Bethesda, MD (Nov. 3, 2014) -- The American Gastroenterological Association is pleased to welcome a new member to its family of journals: Cellular and Molecular Gastroenterology and Hepatology (CMGH). CMGH will showcase cutting-edge digestive biology research in a digital open-access format.

"There is a pressing need for a premier, laboratory science-focused journal in the area of gastrointestinal, hepatobiliary and pancreatology research," said Jerrold R. Turner, MD, PhD, AGAF, editor-in-chief, Cellular and Molecular Gastroenterology and Hepatology. "CMGH will be that journal. We will showcase the most novel and cutting-edge research in the field, which is currently taking place at a rapid pace."

CMGH will publish original digestive biology research that covers a broad spectrum of themes related to digestive diseases, as well as integrative research that falls between traditional disciplinary boundaries. The research will be rigorous, hypothesis-driven and mechanistically novel. Featured topics include biology, immunology, physiology, microbiology, genetics and neurobiology of gastrointestinal, hepatobiliary, and pancreatic health and disease.

In addition to full-length original articles, CMGH will also publish brief reports, commentaries, editorials and focused reviews. In this way, CMGH will become a forum for discussions of major breakthroughs and a home for insightful debate.

To promote the availability of the breakthroughs reported in CMGH to all, articles will be freely available without subscription. CMGH will be completely digital, which will allow readers to download individual articles, topic collections or entire issues from the journal's website or app. CMGH will maximize the functionality that digital publishing allows -- for example, the journal will integrate animated figures to further advance communication and take advantage of the virtual microscope and other interactive technologies. Also, the journal's website will be mobile optimized so that readers can enjoy the content anywhere, anytime.

"We are excited about the future that lies ahead -- it is a revolutionary time in scholarly publishing, and we intend to be on the cutting edge," added Dr. Turner.

Researchers may submit their manuscripts for consideration through CMGH's streamlined online submission and manuscript tracking system. Articles are available online within days of acceptance and will be featured in the first issues of CMGH, beginning January 2015.

CMGH joins AGA's other peer-reviewed journals, Gastroenterology and Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology.
