AJG values patient prioritized outcomes. This call seeks to explore patient-centered research of the digestive system focusing on patient reported outcomes (PROs) such as symptoms and health-related quality of life. Papers should critically examine relevant exposures and interventions with a focus on patient centered outcomes. Other patient-centered topics will also be prioritized for this collection, including availability of services, patient-centered technologies, and manuscripts focusing on disease burden.  Ideally, submissions should incorporate a wide variety of settings and diverse participants to address individual differences in care.  Submissions can be of all study types, from descriptive epidemiology to randomized controlled trials.

Please clearly state in your cover letter that your manuscript is intended for the Patient-Centered Outcomes special issue. This issue is scheduled to publish in Spring 2025. Depending on the responses to this request, some accepted manuscripts may be published in other upcoming issues of AJG.

Manuscripts should be submitted through the journal submission system

Submission Window Closes: December 1, 2024
