ISTH Offers Congress Highlights via New Publication
Wednesday, June 12, 2013
The ISTH recently announced that MD Conference Express, the world’s first peer-reviewed
medical congress highlights publication, will be the official highlights report
of the ISTH 2013 Congress. Through this partnership, the ISTH will provide a
scientifically-vetted overview of key outcomes from the Congress to global
practitioners and researchers.
"We are excited about the partnership and collaboration,”
said Nigel Key, M.D., ISTH’s council chairman-elect and chairman of the
publications committee. "MD Conference Express’ unique and stringent peer-review process will provide the readers
with a scientifically vetted overview of the most important outcomes from our
ISTH 2013 Congress – including highlights of data which may not yet have a
published primary source. With this partnership, we can bridge the gap between
live congress presentations and their eventual publication in the academic
literature with a scientifically sound resource.”
Content for MD Conference Express is selected by the ISTH
Congress scientific steering committee. The concise summary articles are
written entirely from primary source material. The presenting faculty are
invited to review and comment on the short summaries, which are then subjected
to rigorous peer-review by an advisory board of experts from top medical
institutions around the world. This process ensures that the resulting summary
articles are of top quality and free of any commercial bias.
Express: ISTH 2013 will be available to ISTH members and
attendees of the ISTH 2013 Congress in Amsterdam just five weeks after the
close of the event. Translated copies are planned to be made available to
thrombosis and haemostasis researchers and practitioners around the world.
To introduce the concept of peer-reviewed
congress highlights to our community, MD Conference Express has created a
custom reprint collection of bleeding and clotting topics summarized from other
major congresses in 2012. This special "ISTH Presents: MD Conference Express
Highlights in Thrombosis and Haemostasis” is now available on www.isth.org and also on
. For more information about MD Conference Express, please visit: www.mdconferencexpress.com. The official peer-reviewed highlights of the ISTH 2013 Congress will
be available in August 2013.
