As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
COVID-19 and impact on peer review
We are excited to announce the addition of a new section to Journal of Translational Medicine entitled Translational medicines 'Ecosystem'.
Led by Section Editor Vijay Mahant, this exciting new section aims to provide a forum for the topics spanning the translational research ecosystem beyond academia.
Particular focus area will include opportunities and challenges in collaborating with industry and the role of stakeholders in the translational research “ecosystem”.
Check out the most discussed articles from Journal of Translational Medicine in the past 6 months!
Autologous fat transfer with in-situ mediation (AIM): a novel and compliant method of adult mesenchymal stem cell therapy
Francesco Marincola, Refuge Biotechnologies, USA
Translational hematology- Edited by Seah H. Lim
This section will provide an international platform for presentation of high quality clinical and laboratory translational research, bridging the gap between basic research and pure clinical studies. The scope includes clinical and clinico-pathological investigations and fundamental research of translational potential in hematologic diseases. These include studies in red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, coagulation, transfusion medicine, and cellular therapy.
Translational Medicine Communications is the companion journal of Journal of Translational Medicine.
Translational Medicine Communications is an interdisciplinary forum for all scientifically valid research from across translational medicine. The journal aims to improve transparency and reproducibility within translational medicine and considers research papers regardless of outcome or significance of findings.
