How to publish in this journal


MGH is the newest peer-reviewed journal published by the American Gastroenterological Association (AGA), joining Gastroenterology and Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology (CGH). The mission of CMGH is to publish impactful digestive biology research that ranges from mechanisms of normal function to pathobiology and covers a broad spectrum of themes in gastroenterology, hepatology, and pancreatology. The journal reports the latest advances in cell biology, immunology, physiology, microbiology, genetics, and neurobiology of gastrointestinal, hepatobiliary, and pancreatic health and disease. The research CMGH publishes is hypothesis driven, mechanistically novel, and appropriately designed and powered. Studies published in CMGH address important questions and use in vitro models, tissues or cells from patients, and animal models to make fundamental discoveries and translate them to human disease. CMGH is primarily for basic and translational researchers. By providing a rigorous central forum for high quality digestive biology, CMGH ensures that this group, which includes trainees, new investigators, and established investigators, has access to a spectrum of outstanding work in one location. In an effort to distribute its content to the widest audience possible, CMGH is open access. The web-accessible digital platform is maximized by inclusion of graphical abstracts, large data sets, and video microscopy, endoscopy, and whole animal imaging approaches. Content can also be accessed via a dedicated app. CMGH is presently published 8 times each year, and will move to a monthly publication over time. Reviews are handled fairly and rapidly by the Editors with assistance of an expert editorial board and external reviews. Following rigorous peer review, accepted manuscripts are available online within days of the final decision. Join the conversation about this journal

The set of journals have been ranked according to their SJR and divided into four equal groups, four quartiles. Q1 (green) comprises the quarter of the journals with the highest values, Q2 (yellow) the second highest values, Q3 (orange) the third highest values and Q4 (red) the lowest values.


The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Total Documents

Evolution of the number of published documents. All types of documents are considered, including citable and non citable documents.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.

Evolution of the number of total citation per document and external citation per document (i.e. journal self-citations removed) received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years. External citations are calculated by subtracting the number of self-citations from the total number of citations received by the journal’s documents.
