About the journal
As a fully Open Access journal, Journal of Translational Research will adopt a multidisciplinary approach to disseminate the latest research and support the fastest possible transfer of knowledge to the relevant communities.
There is an urgent mandate to reduce to the time taken to go from bench to bedside. The public, governments, and funding bodies all demand that the research enterprise incorporates the entire journey from basic science through to clinical practice. This journal will set the tone for progress in translational research. The journal will do this through dedicated sections that will consider new models and methods of doing research that speed up our ability to get safe and effective treatments to patients, as well as how we engage the communities that are under-represented in the research ecosystem.
The journal is committed to taking reported results and moving them toward or into clinical practice as quickly as possible. Therefore, submissions will be handled in a timely manner, with an initial decision on whether articles will be peer reviewed within 5 days, and a first decision on submissions within an average of 22 days.
