Wolters Kluwer, American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases announce publishing collaboration
Wolters Kluwer, Health, a leading global provider of information and point of care solutions for the healthcare industry, and American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD), the leading organization of physicians, scientists, and other health care professionals committed to preventing and curing liver disease, have entered into a multi-year agreement.
Under this agreement, beginning in January 2023, Wolters Kluwer will publish AASLD’s portfolio of four specialty journals, including its premier publication HEPATOLOGY, which features peer-reviewed articles on all aspects of liver structure, function, and disease, selected by their distinguished editorial board.
Wolters Kluwer will focus on expanding AASLD’s journal readership globally through access and distribution on the Ovid® medical research platform, among other channels, as well as the potential to reach members and practitioners through new digital channels.
“This is an exciting day for AASLD,” said AASLD President Dr. Laurie D. DeLeve, MD, PhD, FAASLD. “AASLD prides itself on advancing cutting-edge research that progresses the field of hepatology in preventing, diagnosing, and treating diseases. Wolters Kluwer brings extensive knowledge on the future of medical publishing to the partnership and their strategic guidance will allow us to push those discoveries to even greater heights.”
