Post written by Douglas G. Adler, MD, FACG, AGAF, FASGE, GIE Editor-in-Chief, from the Center for Advanced Therapeutic Endoscopy, Centura Health, Denver, Colorado, USA.
We at Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (GIE) are excited to announce a new section in the journal and a new manuscript classification: Focused Communications.
These articles will highlight studies that reach a highly specific conclusion and can convey all their information to readers in a condensed format for maximum efficiency. Focused Communications will be no longer than 1500 words, contain no more than 10 references, and can be accompanied by 2 Figures, 2 Tables, or a combination of 1 Figure and 1 Table.
We at GIE recognize that not all studies require the full length of standard original articles to convey their findings to readers, and some projects are more limited or focused in scope.
Some journals use the Letters to the Editor section to highlight such studies, but we at GIE feel that these studies still deserve the formal designation of a full original manuscript that a Letter to the Editor format would not allow.
We look forward to the success and growth of this new section of the journal!
