Abstract

Scientific Publications Regarding Liver Cirrhosis and Portal Hypertension in 6 Science Citation Index Hepatology Specialized Journals from 2009 To 2011

We analyzed the original papers regarding liver cirrhosis and portal hypertension in 6 science citation index journals that are specialized in hepatology (i.e., Hepatology, Journal of Hepatology, Liver International, Hepatology International, Hepatology Research, and Annals of Hepatology).  Methods: All original papers published in these journals between 2009 and 2011 were identified. The proportion of original papers regarding cirrhosis and portal hypertension was calculated, and was compared among different journals. Other characteristics of these papers were also reported.Conclusions: A low proportion of original papers regarding cirrhosis and portal hypertension suggested that more high-quality researches should be performed.
