Aims and scope

Journal of Clinical and Translational Hepatology (JCTH) publishes high quality, peer-reviewed studies in the clinical and basic human health sciences of liver diseases. JCTH has established high standards for publication of original research characterized by a study’s novelty, quality, and ethical conduct in the scientific process, as well as in the communication of the research findings. Each issue includes review articles by leading authorities on topics in hepatology that are germane to the most current challenges in the field. Special features will include reports on the latest advances in drug development and technology that are relevant to liver diseases. Regular features of the JCTH also include editorials, correspondence, and invited commentaries on rapidly progressing areas in hepatology. All articles published by the JCTH, both solicited and unsolicited, must pass a rigorous peer review. 

The open-access publishing model of JCTH avails an international readership, prompting worldwide interest from contributing authors, and helping promote the diverse range of hepatology topics covered in our journal. The JCTH welcomes submissions of articles within its topical scope including:
