Oxford University Press (OUP) has launched a new journal, Gastroenterology Report.

Gastroenterology research has developed quickly in China in the last decade, and as a result there is a gap between the current status of clinical journals in gastroenterology, and the increased demands international communication in the field.  

This new journal is aimed to be a pioneer in this regard: a high-quality clinical journal originating in China that positions itself in what was, until now, a gap in the literature of the field.

Gastroenterology Report will be a high-profile, peer-reviewed, online-only, open-access (OA) journal, co-owned by OUP and Digestive Science Publishing Company. It will cover all areas related to gastrointestinal sciences, including studies of alimentary tract, liver, biliary, pancreas, enteral nutrition, and related fields.

The journal aims to publish high quality research articles on both basic and clinical gastroenterology, authoritative reviews that bring together new advances in the field, as well as commentaries and highlight pieces that provide expert analysis of topical issues.

Ting Wang, managing editor, said: 'Driven by globalisation, China has been increasingly involved in international exchanges and cooperation of medical research. However, as a non-English speaking country, and due to lack of experience, China is facing challenges to publish high-tier medical journals with international audiences.  

'The close cooperation with OUP offers us a good opportunity to change this.  We believe that the success and experiences of OUP in both publishing and marketing will help GR achieve its goal to become an internationally renowned medical journal, and fulfil its mission to promote the development of Gastroenterology and benefit the health of patients.'
