As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.

Featured article: Implementation of an acute DVT ambulatory care pathway in a large urban centre: current challenges and future opportunities
Ambulatory management of isolated acute deep venous thrombosis (DVT) is the recommended standard of care in selected populations. However, in practice a significant number of patients continue to be managed as in-patients. In this study we aimed to evaluate acute DVT treatment pathways in our emergency department (ED) in practice and to identify barriers to outpatient management.
World Thrombosis Day (WTD): impacts of hospitalization, cancer-bearing, and earthquakes
October 13th is World Thrombosis Day, a global movement that aims to focus attention on thrombosis, an often overlooked and misunderstood condition. To mark the occasion we invited Tetsumei Urano, Associate Editor of Thrombosis Journal to tells us about the conditions that the day focuses on.

Aims and scope
Thrombosis Journal is an open-access journal that publishes original articles on aspects of clinical and basic research, new methodology, case reports and reviews in the areas of thrombosis.
Topics of particular interest include the diagnosis of arterial and venous thrombosis, new antithrombotic treatments, new developments in the understanding, diagnosis and treatments of atherosclerotic vessel disease, relations between haemostasis and vascular disease, hypertension, diabetes, immunology and obesity.
Latest article series and supplements
The 9th Congress of the Asian-Pacific Society on Thrombosis and Hemostasis was held from 6-9 October 2016 in Taipei, Taiwan.
As the official journal of the APSTH, Thrombosis Journal has published a supplement of state of the art review and research articles in conjunction with the congress.
In recent years it has become increasingly clear that the immune system and coagulation pathways interact and influence one another. Inflammation-induced thrombosis is considered a feature of several autoimmune diseases and thus such findings have important consequences for the treatment and management of such diseases.
The Asian-Pacific Society of Thrombosis and Hemostasis (APSTH) is a non-profit organization that welcomes any medical or scientific professionals with an interest in the field of thrombosis and hemostasis, particularly those professionals from the Asia Pacific Region.
The main objectives of APSTH are to foster and advance clinical and scientific knowledge in the field of thrombosis, hemostasis and vascular biology through promotion of scientific exchange via meetings, publications, and promotion of international cooperation in clinical studies, and standardization of nomenclature and practices in the Asia-Pacific region.
“It is with great pleasure that I join the Editorial team of Thrombosis Journal and to take on the role as co-Editor-in-Chief (EiC). This is indeed a great honor for me. For your information, I am a biochemist and have been active in the field of Thrombosis and Haemostasis with a particular interest in fibrinolysis for over 38 years. I am looking forward to making a positive contribution to Thrombosis Journal. I would very much like to thank and acknowledge the many years at the helm by my predecessor Prof Hugo Ten Cate. I will do my best to fill Hugo’s shoes. I would also like to acknowledge the long-lasting role of Yukio Ozaki as co-EiC who will be continuing in this role. I am looking forward to working with Prof Ozaki and the dedicated Associate Editors to develop and implement new ideas and approaches to improve the standing of the Journal.”
Robert Medcalf, Editor-in-Chief, Thrombosis Journal
"Treatment and prophylaxis of thrombotic and bleeding disorders is of great importance to the worldwide population, and there is a great need to facilitate the research activities related to this field. The aim of Thrombosis Journal is to provide a platform on which these important studies are visible to all members of the scientific community and public."
