Cellular and Molecular Gastroenterology and Hepatology (CMGH) publishes cutting-edge digestive biology research that ranges from mechanisms of normal function to pathobiology and covers a broad spectrum of themes in gastroenterology, hepatology, and pancreatology. The journal reports the latest advances in cell biology, immunology, physiology, microbiology, genetics, and neurobiology of gastrointestinal, hepatobiliary, and pancreatic health and disease. CMGH publishes original papers, brief reports, reviews, editorials, commentaries, and letters to the editor. Manuscripts must be prepared in accordance with the "Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts Submitted to Biomedical Journals" developed by the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (http://www.icmje.org). CMGH is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) (http://www.publicationethics.org.uk).
CMGH is primarily interested in rigorous, hypothesis-driven, mechanistically novel studies that provide new insight into all aspects of gastrointestinal, hepatobiliary, and pancreatic biology. There is no requirement for work to have a disease or translational link, but studies with such implications are welcome. Most of the original research published in CMGH will take advantage of cell lines, animal models, or tissues or cells from patients. All work must be appropriately designed and powered.
A founding principle of CMGH is that the wide dissemination of outstanding research is critical to progress in digestive health and disease. Therefore, CMGH is a completely digital, open access journal, meaning that its content is easily and freely accessible from around the globe.
