New Investigators: Save Money Publishing with Gastroenterology

Jan. 10, 2018

Gastroenterology now promotes and waives page fees for “Hot Papers from New Investigators."

Gastroenterology Editors-in-Chief Richard M. Peek, Jr., MD, AGAF, and Douglas A. Corley, MD, PhD, AGAF, are on the lookout for original and impactful research submitted by gastroenterologists who are early in their careers. Published articles deemed “Hot Papers From New Investigators” will have their page fees waived and receive promotion from AGA. The editors will select one “Hot Paper” per month.

The first selected article, Cost Effectiveness of Age-Specific Screening Intervals for People With Family Histories of Colorectal Cancer, appears in the January 2018 issue of Gastroenterology. Lead author Steffie K. Naber, PhD, is an assistant professor of health technology assessment at the University Medical Center Utrecht in the Netherlands. Dr. Naber’s research finds that the cost effectiveness of colonoscopy screening in individuals with family histories can be improved by lengthening the interval of screening for those unlikely to be affected by genetic predisposition.

“We are very excited to have the opportunity to promote the scientific advances of early stage career investigators through this new program,” said Co-Editor-in-Chief Dr. Richard Peek. “Gastroenterology will continue in its unwavering support of such individuals as a means to insure that novel and innovative studies in our discipline will continue to be performed on a very high level well into the future.”

Congrats to Dr. Naber for this impactful research. The Gastroenterology editors look forward to publishing future “Hot Papers” from early career investigators.
