Hematology - European Medical Journal

Aims and Scope

EMJ Hematology is an open access, peer-reviewed eJournal committed to publishing the highest quality medical research concerning all aspects of diseases of the blood and bone marrow to help advance the development of this field.

The journal is published annually, approximately six weeks after the European Hematology Association (EHA) Congress, and features highlights from this congress, alongside interviews with experts in the field, reviews of abstracts presented at the congress, as well as in-depth features on congress sessions. The journal also covers advances within the clinical and pharmaceutical arenas by publishing sponsored content from congress symposia, which is of high educational value for healthcare professionals. This undergoes rigorous quality control checks by independent experts and the in-house editorial team.

EMJ Hematology also publishes peer-reviewed research papers, review articles, and case reports in the field. In addition, the journal welcomes the submission of features and opinion pieces intended to create a discussion around key topics in the field and broaden readers’ professional interests. The journal is managed by a dedicated editorial team that adheres to a rigorous double-blind peer-review process, maintains high standards of copy editing, and ensures timely publication.

EMJ Hematology endeavours to increase knowledge, stimulate discussion, and contribute to a better understanding of blood disorders. Our focus is on research that is relevant to healthcare professionals in this field. We do not publish veterinary science papers or laboratory studies not linked to patient outcomes.
