Journal of Viral Hepatitis: GHS 2018 Supplement 

Aims and Scope

Journal of Viral Hepatitis is a peer-reviewed title that publishes reviews, original research and short, rapid communications in the area of viral hepatitis. The Journal aims to unite epidemiologists, clinicians, pathologists, virologists and specialists in transfusion medicine, thereby bringing together in a single journal the important issues in this rapidly expanding specialty. Abstracts published in the Journal of Viral Hepatitis Special Issues: 16th International Symposium on Viral Hepatitis and Liver Diseases (ISVHLD) include:
