The journal’s website underwent a makeover to become more accessible and modern with easier use on mobile devices.
In addition, authors can submit new article types:
- Original Articles – These submissions should report on endoscopic procedures, remarkable cases, novel devices, new endoscopic technology, management of digestive conditions, or the use of standard equipment in novel ways.
- Review Articles – Using a comprehensive narrative, authors should review a state-of-the-art endoscopic technique or management strategy for a particular condition. A series of cases and/or graphical illustrations can demonstrate this review. Editors may solicit review articles from recognized experts in the field. High-quality submissions from the medical community also will be considered.
- Patient Education Articles – These submissions should provide education for patients about aspects of endoscopic procedures. Content can be focused on patient preparation for a procedure, expectations for before or during a procedure, indications for the procedure, explanation of the procedure, potential adverse events, and postprocedural care. Animations or diagrams to simplify explanations, especially for complex procedures, are encouraged.
- Industry Education Articles – This new article type intends to provide vetted content focusing on education about existing or emerging endoscopic technologies and to allow users and customers to quickly review product use, set-up, and settings. Features of this article type will include tips, tricks, and helpful tweaks demonstrating manufacturer-approved uses and settings for equipment. Animations to simplify complex procedures are encouraged.
