Clinical and Translational Gastroenterology (CTG), published on behalf of the American College of Gastroenterology (ACG), is a peer-reviewed open access online journal dedicated to innovative clinical work in the field of gastroenterology and hepatology. CTG hopes to fulfill an unmet need for clinicians and scientists by welcoming novel case series and cohort studies, reports from early phase development of novel pharmacotherapies, and hypothesis-generating translational research and preclinical studies with clear applications to human physiology or disease. CTG also welcomes hypothesis-generating case series, methods papers, and translational research.

A tremendous amount of time and talent from an impressive pool of GI experts is devoted to the development of new ACG guidelines on gastrointestinal and liver diseases.
