The "Journal of Hepato-Biliary-Pancreatic Sciences" is the official journal of the Japanese Society of Hepato-Biliary-Pancreatic Surgery and the Asian-Pacific Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Association, , and the Japan Biliary Association.
The journal succeeds the "Journal of Hepato-Biliary-Pancreatic Surgery" with its well-established reputation and 16-year history. The newly named journal builds upon that tradition with the expanded scope of disseminating knowledge in broader fields not limited to surgery. Also welcomed are articles on radiology (including interventional radiology), pathology, endoscopy, biochemistry, and physiology--in all aspects of the field of hepatic, biliary, and pancreatic diseases. All contributions, which are published as original articles, topics, review articles, technical notes, images of interest, rapid communications, letters to the editors, and other articles, should be aimed at promoting international scientific collaboration.
