STM publisher Springer, Germany, has announced a new publishing partnership with the Japanese Society of Hematology (JSH) to publish the latter's journal - International Journal of Hematology. The journal is available (back to 1997) on Springer's online information platform SpringerLink. The journal appears ten times a year and was previously published by Carden Jennings. Professor Toshio Suda from the Department of Cell Differentiation, Keio University School of Medicine, Tokyo, will serve as editor-in-chief. He will be supported by an international editorial board.
The official journal of the JSH, the International Journal of Hematology publishes leading research in hematology. The journal contributes to progress in research in basic and clinical hematology, and aims to cover all aspects of the field, including erythrocytes, leukocytes and hematopoiesis, hemostasis, thrombosis and vascular biology, hematological malignancies, transplantation and cell therapy. The expanded 'Progress in Hematology' section integrates relevant fields such as the cell biology of stem cells and cancer cells, as well as clinical research in inflammation, cancer and thrombosis. The results of clinical trials are also included in report form, thus fostering communication among researchers in this growing field.
Under Springer, the journal will make use of a manuscript tracking system that speeds publication of important articles in the field. Articles will be published in Online First in full text via SpringerLink. This system ensures immediate distribution of the electronic version of the article before it appears in print. Cross Reference Linking and Alert services will be fully implemented for the journal. It will be distributed in both paper and electronic versions.
