Hep-I Impact Factor jumped up to 5.49!


Dear Colleagues,
Hepatology International, in association with Springer Nature, is extremely delighted to share with you the 2018 Impact Factor of HEPI which has touched a new high of 5.49 from 4.11 in 2017. More so, we have jumped into the TOP 20 Journals of Gastroenterology and Hepatology and are placed at position 17.
A significant feat for our journal indeed!
It never goes without saying that this would not have been possible without your support.
We look forward to grow together as a team and steer our journal, Hepatology International, towards a more purposeful space in the field of hepatology. With best regards,

Prof Masao Omata / Prof. Shiv Sarin

SharedIt services: A boon for Authors/Researchers

SharedIt is part of Springer Nature initiative that allows authors to share their research to wider communities by enabling over 200 key media outlets and blogs to link to free-to-read versions of research articles. This media list has been significantly expanded to coincide with the expansion of the initiative across the Springer Nature portfolio. Many on this media list are aimed at the public, including BBC, The Economist, WIRED, The New York Times, as well as leading science bloggers.

Upon publication, corresponding authors are emailed a shareable link to view-only versions of their peer-reviewed research papers. All corresponding authors are sent this link, even those with papers published in open access journals. A stable, shortened URL is made available for published authors to share the full-text access to their paper by using the link http://rdcu.be/p2UW

Enhanced PDF: The link takes the author to a read-only enhanced PDF format of their published paper.

For open-access articles, all readers will be able to download, print and save an enhanced PDF, or to view the full-text HTML version.

For subscription articles, only subscribers will be able to download, print and save an enhanced PDF, or to view the full-text HTML version.

Authors can request shareable links of other research articles that they have authored with most Springer Nature journals by entering the article's DOI into our author portal

Springer Nature has a sample social media plan to help authors promote their research via Facebook and Twitter. The four-week campaign utilizes the SharedItlink to gain visibility through concentrated daily marketing, using both direct and indirect (post comments) methods.

For more Information please visit the SharedIt page on Springernature.com.

APASL STC 2019 on Viral Hepatitis in Pakistan
Welcome Message from the President

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Organizing Committee of APASL STC Islamabad 2019, it is my great pleasure to welcome all the participants across the country and from abroad to attend the esteemed Conference on Viral Hepatitis from December 5-8, 2019 at Serena Hotel Islamabad, Pakistan. The theme of the meeting is Elimination of Viral Hepatitis by 2030 “From Dream to Reality”.
It is indeed an honor that PSSLD will be holding Third APASL Single Topic Conference this year. PSSLD is working with clear objective to create awareness among health care workers and to sensitize them to the burden of Liver diseases and its implications in the community.

The meeting’s content and activities are tailored to a wide audience of Hepatologists, Gastroenterologists, General practitioners and Postgraduate students. In this meeting we have included several interactive sessions with live audience response. Scientific program has CME credits and offers fantastic updates for consultants, trainees and primary care physicians. Faculty will include international key opinion leaders, mainly from the Asia Pacific region as well as from home.

We urge our colleagues to participate enthusiastically and honor us with their presence. This will be an exciting and educational meet for all.

All the committees are working very hard to make it a memorable event. It would be a great opportunity to meet and network with like-minded colleagues.

It will be winter in Islamabad which is surrounded by Margalla Hills and you will need warm clothing if you intend to move around. Remains of ancient civilization of Ghandara (Taxila) are just nearby (45 minutes’ drive) and if you wish to have a trip to snow covered mountains it is just 40 Km away.

Looking forward to welcome you all in the beautiful city of Islamabad.
