The ISTH open access journal, Research and Practice in Thrombosis and Haemostasis (RPTH) has launched a new article type: the Illustrated Review. This new scientific content is an innovative way to integrate journal content into modern communication methods. In a new editorial, RPTH Associate Editor Alisa Wolberg and RPTH Editor-in-Chief Mary Cushman introduced the concept as a kind of graphic novel for science:

"Much like a graphic novel—a comic book, if you will—an Illustrated Review Article consists of 'capsules' that each include a central image that conveys the author's message, accompanied by brief supporting text," they write. "By encouraging this distilled format, we aim to stretch the creativity of scientists to effectively convey their work to the broad science community and the public. This format should also allow improved retention and understanding of the information by readers."
