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.

Through our Elevate Journal Series, we’re committed to making sure you have the best author experience possible. By choosing to publish into one of our hand-picked, Elevate journals, you’ll receive a more tailored and bespoke service, offering timely and tactical feedback from a dedicated team, one to one communication from your named contact through peer review, an easier, swifter publishing process that shines a light on the best version of your work.
