ISTH announces new partnership with Elsevier to publish the Society’s two scientific journals, JTH and RPTH, beginning January 2023

Chapel Hill, NC | September 13, 2022

The International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH) announces a new partnership with Elsevier, a global leader in information and analytics, to publish its two scientific publications, the Journal of Thrombosis and Haemostasis (JTH) and Research and Practice in Thrombosis and Haemostasis (RPTH). The journals will be hosted on Elsevier’s leading online platform, ScienceDirect, beginning January 2023

“At the ISTH, we take great pride in our journals and our commitment to publish high quality and influential basic, translational, and clinical science to advance the understanding of thrombosis and hemostasis,” said Flora Peyvandi, M.D., Ph.D., ISTH President. “Our new partnership with Elsevier will allow us to further expand the depth of our journals with enhanced technology solutions that will positively impact services for authors and readers, which ultimately benefits patients.”

As the flagship journal of the ISTH and celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2023, JTH continues to be a leading resource in the field publishing high quality, original research reports, state of the art reviews, brief reports, case reports, invited commentaries and more. Its authors, reviewers and editors volunteer their time and expertise to contribute and disseminate important scientific information to the international research community with a hybrid subscription-based model.

In 2022, the JTH achieved a historically high impact factor of 16.036, ranked fifth overall in the hematology subject category and ranked third in the peripheral vascular disease category.

RPTH, celebrating its fifth anniversary in 2022, is an exclusive open-access and online-only publication dedicated to science and discourse among researchers, clinicians, nurses, allied health professionals, as well as patients. RPTH serves as a catalyst for global discussion and connects scientists and clinicians with the non-scientist public to discuss the latest findings and research in the field. In 2021, the journal was accepted into the Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE) qualifying it to receive its first Impact Factor of 5.953 this year. RPTH also ranked 24th overall in the hematology subject category and ranked 16th in the peripheral vascular disease category.

“We are delighted that the ISTH has selected Elsevier as its publishing partner. By combining their expertise with Elsevier’s industry-leading resources for authors, editors, peer reviewers and readers, we will ensure the best possible support for ISTH’s mission and community. By working together, we can achieve a more inclusive, collaborative and transparent world of research,” stated Carl Schwarz Senior Vice President, Health and Medical Sciences, at Elsevier. “JTH and RPTH are highly respected journals in the field and are a great fit to the Elsevier hematology journal portfolio, we are extremely proud to work with ISTH and look forward to helping the society and their journals transition to Elsevier,” added Rachel Garland, Elsevier’s Publisher for Hematology.
