Nature Publishing Group (NPG) and the American College of Gastroenterology (ACG) have announced a new publishing partnership in which NPG will publish ACG’s official publication, the American Journal of Gastroenterology, starting in January 2009.
With an Impact Factor of 5.608 (Thomson, 2007), the American Journal of Gastroenterology is the highest-ranked clinical journal in gastroenterology. The journal is led by Editors-in-Chief Dr Joel E. Richter, of Temple University, and Dr Nicholas J. Talley of the Mayo Clinic in Florida.
Aimed at practicing clinicians, articles published in the American Journal of Gastroenterology deal directly with the disorders seen most often in patients. The journal brings a broad-based, interdisciplinary approach to the study of gastroenterology, including articles reporting on current observations, research results, methods of treatment, drugs, epidemiology and other topics relevant to clinical gastroenterology.
