Research and Practice in Thrombosis and Haemostasis

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.

More about Open Access

Benefits of the Open Access format include consideration of articles that may not be embraced by traditional journals, such as preliminary discovery, replication, important negative studies and case reports. Reports requiring longer formats to convey their message can be considered. To facilitate dissemination of study findings, all figures will be in color and use of illustration to emphasize central findings will be encouraged and supported. Plain Language Summaries provided with each paper will catalyze communication with the general public. To promote collaboration and maximal scientific discovery, authors are encouraged to share data, materials and reagents with others.

Career Development

RPTH will promote career development. There is an early career Associate Editor, early career Editorial Board members, and the ISTH Early Career Task Force will be engaged. An occasional Career Development Forum will be published. In addition, peer reviewers of all career stages who are ISTH members will receive an annual report of the quality of their reviews.
