Hepatology Research (formerly International Hepatology Communications) is an international journal devoted to basic and clinical research in the field of hepatology. It encourages the publication of original research articles, reviews, short communication and case reports. Reviews or mini-reviews are especially welcomed for those areas within hepatology undergoing rapid changes. Short communications should contain concise definitive information. Preliminary notes will also be accepted, regardless of the choice of journal for final publication.
The journal also features an EMBASE literature section from selected (and rotating) themes in hepatology.
