About the Thematic Series

Bleeding disorders are characterized by defects in hemostasis. Recently much interest has arisen in the acute treatment of hemostatic diseases, due to the occasional occult nature of the symptomology and the limitations of the tests available. 

The journal Editors are seeking original research, case reports and review article submissions within

the theme of “Clinical case reports on the alteration of hemostasis and their particular outcomes”.

Papers addressing clinical experiences in diagnostic and therapeutic approaches of unique case reports in this field are welcomed, with a particular interest in the clinical variability of these pathologies to increase knowledge from not only a laboratory point of view but within clinical practice.

What is the advantage to you of publishing in the Journal of Blood Medicine?
  • It is an open access journal which means that your paper is available to anyone in the world to download for free directly from the Dove website.
  • Unlike many traditional journals, your paper will not be rejected due to lack of space. We are an electronic journal and there are no limits on the number or size of the papers we can publish.
  • The time from submission to a decision being made on a paper can, in many journals, take some months and this is very frustrating for authors. The Journal of Blood Medicine has a quicker turnaround time than this. Generally peer review is complete within 4-7 weeks and the editor’s decision within 2-14 days of this. It is therefore very rare to have to wait more than 9 weeks for a final decision. 
  • Many authors have found that our peer reviewer’s comments substantially add to their final papers.

To recover our editorial and production costs and continue to provide our content at no cost to readers we charge authors or their institution a publication processing fee.
