The New Gastroenterologist

Junior Investigators are Top Priority for Gastroenterology Editors


In a recent video interview, Richard Peek Jr., MD, AGAF, Editor in Chief, and Douglas Corley, MD, PhD, Deputy Editor in Chief, of Gastroenterology explained how trainees and young GIs fit into their plans for the journal. Good news: this constituency is among the editors’ top priorities.

The editors have plans to implement a year-long editorial fellowship later in their term, which will allow an individual to get hands-on experience in the editorial process.

The editors also appreciate the fresh take young investigators have on research. To encourage continued high-quality submissions from young investigators, the editors will decrease submission fees for young investigators and work to increase the visibility of young investigator research.

The editors also plan to develop new features within the Gastroenterology Mentor, Education and Training Corner that will be of interest to trainees and early career GIs.
