Aims and scope
The Journal of Clinical and Translational Research (JCTR) is an open-access, peer-reviewed, multidisciplinary scientific journal that publishes studies with at least an ex vivo, in vivo, or clinical component. The published research centers on any clearly defined clinical problem, which may comprise a disease or the basis of disease, a form of therapy or intervention, and clinical diagnostics or prognostics.
Articles (original research, reviews, technical reports, medical hypotheses, commissioned articles, special issue articles, and editorials) are published bi-monthly.
Studies performed in cells only will generally not be accepted unless they contain critical data that are in line with the scope of the journal. Some examples of such studies include molecular pathways that lie at the basis of a disease, novel biotechnological approaches, e.g., the production of drugs, or new techniques that improve clinical diagnostics and prognostics. Articles that combine preclinical and clinical data are given priority. Contributions from academic institutions and industry are welcome.
The research areas that JCTR covers include but are not limited to:
|Internal medicine (all branches)
|Gastroenterology and hepatology
|Vascular medicine and phlebology
|Surgery and transplantation
|Intensive care medicine
|Endocrinology and metabolism
|Neurology and neurosciences
|Anatomy, physiology, and embryology
|Radiology and nuclear medicine
|Genetics and epigenetics
|Biomedical spectroscopy and spectrometry
