Introducing a new Open Access journal from ISTH: Research and Practice in Thrombosis and Haemostasis (RPTH)


Research and Practice in Thrombosis and Haemostasis (RPTH) is the newest journal of the International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH) and the newest journal in the field of thrombosis and hemostasis. Complementing its flagship journal, the Journal of Thrombosis and Haemostasis (JTH), RPTH provides a dedicated Open Access home for science and discourse among researchers, clinicians, nurses, allied health professionals, and patients.

RPTH is a “living journal” and serves as a jumping point for digital discussion. It also reflects the current era of inter-disciplinary scientific discovery and new methods of knowledge dissemination and the wide reach of ISTH by featuring articles from all corners of the globe. RPTH provides rigorous, rapid peer review and immediate dissemination of research reports from basic, clinical, translational and population or public health science. The Journal is interested in quality, outcomes, dissemination and implementation science, seeking studies and trials on novel care delivery, including in areas of resource constraint around the world.

RPTH will debut at the ISTH 2017 Congress in Berlin.
