Newsletter UPDATE – Hindawi Terminates our CJGH Contract
Mr. Paul Peters CEO at Hindawi Publishing Corporation, has informed CASL that they will not be renewing our contract agreements when it expires on December 31 2016. As such, the affiliation of CASL and CAG with CJGH will be terminated.
The CASL Journal Task Force, headed by Dr. Eric Yoshida, is in the process of evaluating the needs for a CASL journal and how best to proceed given that our contract with Hindawi and CJGH is terminated.
CASL will soon be conducting a membership survey. We are seeking your input on the future direction of our Journal. Your opinion on these matters is very important so please be sure to complete the survey. The more responses we receive, the better we can assess our next steps. We look forward to having your full participation in this effort.
Please be reminded that the Annals of Hepatology remains an official CASL journal in partnership with the Mexican Association of Hepatology and ALEH, with an impact factor >2. (www.annalsofhepatology.com)
We will provide regular updates on this issue as events unfold. We plan to survey our membership and certainly welcome any comments or suggestions that you might have.
The Canadian Association for the Study of the Liver is pleased to provide our members with subscriptions to the following Journals:
Annals of Hepatology publishes original research on the biology and diseases of the liver in both humans and experimental models. Contributions may be submitted as regular articles. The journal also publishes concise reviews of both basic and clinical topics. Authors interested in contributing reviews are requested to first contact the Editor or one of the Associate Editors with an outline of the proposed article. Clinical case reports are considered if they provide significant new information on a specific disease. Letters to the Editor may be subjected to peer review and undergo editing for clarity and brevity.
Liver International promotes all aspects of the science of hepatology from basic research to applied clinical studies. Providing an international forum for the publication of high quality original research in hepatology, it is an essential resource for everyone working on normal and abnormal structure and function in the liver and its constituent cells, including clinicians and basic scientists involved in the multi-disciplinary field of hepatology.
