Doug Corley Promoted to Co-Editor-in-Chief of Gastroenterology

Oct. 19, 2017

Congratulations to Dr. Corley and Gastroenterology on this historic moment!

After nearly 18 months of serving as deputy editor-in-chief of Gastroenterology, Douglas A. Corley, MD, PhD, AGAF, from Kaiser Permanente and the University of California, San Francisco, has been named co-editor-in-chief, alongside Richard M. Peek, MD, AGAF, from Vanderbilt University Medical Center. The editor-in-chief/deputy editor-in-chief model was the first of its kind for the journal when Drs. Peek and Corley began their term in July 2016. Historically, Gastroenterology had been overseen by a sole editor-in-chief; however, because of Drs. Peek’s and Corley’s outstanding careers and qualifications, as well as their complementary areas of expertise, the AGA Institute Governing Board made a landmark decision in May 2015 to create a new editorial structure. 

In the last year-and-a-half, it became apparent that Drs. Peek and Corley were shepherding the journal as equal partners, sharing all decision-making involving policies, practices, new initiatives and procedures. Their exceptional partnership has taken Gastroenterology to new heights, and showcases the journal’s commitment to reviewing and disseminating the best of both basic and clinical science. Authors and readers will not notice any changes under the new dual editor-in-chief structure – they can expect to receive the same exceptional peer-review service and quality of content. The AGA Institute Governing Board wishes to congratulate Dr. Corley on this exciting change.

Dr. Peek also congratulates Dr. Corley, saying “I am incredibly excited to move forward in full partnership with such an outstanding investigator, colleague and friend. Doug is an exceptional individual and role model and one who inspires me on an almost daily basis. I could not be happier!”

To learn more about Drs. Peek and Corley’s vision for Gastroenterology, as well as the initiatives they intend to undertake in the next several years, be sure to watch the video (below) they debuted at the start of their term.
