A new open access digital haematology journal, eJHaem is being launched by the British Society for Haematology.

The online journal, which will complement the Society’s existing British Journal of Haematology, will commence publishing in 2020 and will be co-owned with Wiley.

The journal will cover a broad array of haematology topics and is keen to explore emerging interest areas and translational research fields, according to the newly appointed editor, Professor Andrew M. Evens, Director of the Lymphoma Program and Associate Director for Clinical Services at Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey.

“This is an incredibly exciting time in haematology with an explosion of new scientific advances and clinical knowledge into epidemiology, etiology, diagnosis, prognosis, and novel treatments,” he said

Professor Evens’ says eJHaem will be be an open journal in the widest possible sense including openness to new concepts and methods to disseminate cutting edge research.

“We intend to leverage the Open Access format for a highly streamlined medical journal to rapidly disseminate these advances and new knowledge”.

Professor Evans has seven years experience as an Associate Editor with the British Journal of Haematology and says that as well as accepting direct submissions the new journal will have content ‘cascaded’ from the top quartile from the BJHaem

‘When eJHaem was announced earlier this year, it signalled joint commitment from BSH and Wiley to facilitating open research across haematology,” said BSH president Professor Cheng-Hock Toh.

“I am therefore delighted to be able to share the news of Professor Evens’ appointment following Open Access week and look forward to watching this new journal develop”.
